Yes, that is what OP meant. It's one of their big rituals to circumcise the children around the age of 13. If they flinch, cry, move do anything then they won't be considered a warrior. If they do pass, they get a ton of gifts and livestock and treated very well... basically being accepted as a Maasai warrior.

It's not possible for some. But I imagine years of mentally preparing and seeing it happen conditions you somewhat... however little.
