1. Estocada (Reviews - 4) 1140 words

Tercio de Varas-- the first stage, in which the matador watches while the bull is struck with small lances in order to judge the movements and charging patterns of the bull. This also serves to weaken the head and neck muscles of the bull, which causes him to lower his head when he charges.

Tercio de Banderillos-- The second stage. Barbed sticks (literally flags) are stuck into the shoulders and neck of the bull. This usually causes heavy blood loss.

Tercio de Muerta-- The third stage, in which the matador makes his appearance, holding a cape and sword. The goal is to drive the sword through the shoulders and into the heart of the bull. The lungs are usually hit first, causing the bull to cough blood. It may take multiple strikes for the bull to die. This strike is called an estocada.
