For Spaniard José Manuel Medina, however, bull-leaping, or "recorte," is an adrenaline-filled way of life. In recorte competitions, bull-leapers invite charging bulls toward them in order to evade the animals via side-steps, flips and acrobatic turns. A panel of judges scores their moves.

#5 Except if you watched the video you noticed it isn't about bull fighting. Or maybe you missed the part where it is expressly stated ? And I might add your comment is quite vague, what can we expect about what ?
