No bulls are sacrificed for bullfights on Okinawa. It’s like boxing or wrestling for the beast. There are three weight categories for competitions: open weight (normally
more than 970 kg), middle weight (970 kg or less), and light weight (850 kg or less). Title matches for each category are held three times a year.
