El pasado martes día 22 de mayo se realizo la ceremonia de pase a cinturón amarillo de los niños de primer año del proyecto APIR JUDO ( asociacion pro infancia riojana), en las instalaciones que la citada asociación tiene en el casco antiguo de Logroño (La Rioja). La imposición de los cinturones amarillos fue efectuada por su profesor de judo, Francisco Olivenza, que lleva siete años dando clases de esta arte marcial y ejerciendo su labor como voluntario. Fue un acto muy emotivo y cargado de simbolismo.


Last Tuesday, May 22, the yellow belt ceremony of the children of the first year of the project APIR JUDO (association for children from La Rioja) was held in the facilities that the aforementioned association has in the old town of Logroño (La Rioja ). The imposition of the yellow belts was carried out by his judo teacher, Francisco Olivenza, who has been teaching this martial art for seven years and practicing as a volunteer. It was a very emotional act and full of symbolism.
El pensamiento de Jigoro Kano, era que el practicante de este deporte se esforzara con entusiasmo llegando a alcanzar la perfección. Es por ello, que en el año 1900 estableció la Asociación de los Grados Dan Kodokan, la cual es reconocida a nivel internacional.

Los grados representan el nivel de entrenamiento y progreso del Judoca, es decir los años que tiene dedicado a la disciplina del deporte, dicho nivel se simboliza con el cinturón de color que lleve. Los mismos son otorgados por el maestro (entrenador) del arte marcial hasta el cinturón marrón, pero debe presentar un examen oficial para obtener el tan prestigiado cinturón negro. Es fundamental, por tanto, que cuando un judoka pase de cinturón se le dé la importancia que tiene y sea una fiesta compartida con sus compañeros, su maestro, su gimnasio y con sus familiares.
El pasado martes se realizo la ceremonia de pase de cinturon amarillo de los niños de primer año del proyecto APIR JUDO en las instalaciones del Casco Antiguo de Logroño (España). Es un acto lleno de gran simbolismo y significado ya que el judoka deja su cinturón blanco y recoge su amarillo, con lo que se siente participe del judo y de un grupo. Ya no es un chaval que viene a probar un deporte, sino que es un joven judoka que ha demostrado su implicación y trabajo. Está ansioso por tener este cinturón y espera con anhelo a que llegue el año que viene para ayudar a los nuevos alumnos, como le ayudaron a él. 
"Yo solo guardo cuatro cinturones de judo en mi casa: El blanco, el amarillo, el marrón y el negro. El blanco porque fue el principio en el lejano 1988 en Madrid, el amarillo porque me senti muy importante y valorado. El cinturon marron porque me acompaño durante quince años de mi vida, momentos de competición y que no valoraba pasar a cinturón negro, lo cual fue un grave error pero ya no hay vuelta atrás. Y por supuesto, el cinturón negro que para mí fue como si me dieran otra vez el blanco pero de profesor. Todos los días aprendiendo para conseguir que por tus conocimientos tu nuevo cinturon amarillo... Y es bastante dificil. Disfrutar de vuestro nuevo cinturón amarillo y valorarlo pues es un gran paso en vuestra evolución como judokas." dijo el profesor Olivenza al comenzar la ceremonia.

Los niños estaban bastante emocionados ya que la entrega de cinturones fue presenciada por sus familiares, sus compañeros y por miembros de la asociacion Pro Infancia Riojana. El simbolismo de la ceremonia consiste en que el maestro nombra al judoka, que se pone en posicion de rodillas delante de él. Le pregunta que si se cree merecedor de poseer el cinturón amarillo y asiente con la cabeza. El maestro delante de todos admite que son merecedores de dicho cinturón y recita dos frases que el fundador del judo, JIGORO KANO, pronunció: 
"Sólo se acerca a la perfección los que visitan con CONSTANCIA, SABIDURIA Y SOBRE TODO HUMILDAD." 
"Saber un poco más cada día y UTILIZARLO TODOS LOS DIAS PARA BIEN, está es la forma verdadera del judo."
El profesor dice esta frase para que todos los presentes se den cuenta que el Judo es algo más que un deporte, más que un arte marcial, es una forma de vida y los niños tienen que saber que forman parte de algo muy grande que con esfuerzo puede que les haga mejores personas y ciudadanos del mundo.
A continuación el maestro coloca el cinturón amarillo delante de él, y procede a quitar el cinturon blanco que coloca delante del alumno. Los cambia de lugar y le coloca el cinturon amarillo a su alumno. Se saludan de rodillas, se levantan y realizan el saludo de pie. El alumno se coloca al lado del profesor y esté presenta al nuevo cinturón amarillo a la clase, a los familiares y a todo APIR, que le demuestran su respeto realizando el saludo. Un acto muy emotivo que realizamos todos los años, pero que a mí como profesor me conmueve cada vez más.
Al final de la entrega de todos los cinturones, los nuevos amarillos se colocan al lado del profesor y saludan con respeto a sus familiares, dando por finalizado el pequeño acto. 

"Tener en cuenta queridos alumnos que el paso que habéis dado es muy importante y que estoy muy orgulloso de vosotros, pero quiero que tengáis en cuenta una cosa y que no se os olvide nunca: Los que tenéis que estar orgullosos de vosotros sois vosotros mismos, y debéis hacer las cosas para sentiros realizados y bien. Disfrutad de vuestro cinturón con vuestra familia pues lo habéis ganado con vuestro esfuerzo y dedicación. El próximo día empezareis el camino para un nuevo peldaño en el Judo y aquí estaremos para ayudaros." concluyo el maestro Olivenza.


The thought of Jigoro Kano, was that the practitioner of this sport to strive with enthusiasm reaching perfection. That is why, in the year 1900, he established the Dan Kodokan Grade Association, which is internationally recognized.

The grades represent the level of training and progress of the Judoka, that is to say the years that it has devoted to the discipline of the sport, this level is symbolized by the color belt that it bears. They are awarded by the master (trainer) of the martial art to the brown belt, but must present an official exam to obtain the so prestigious black belt. It is fundamental, therefore, that when a judoka passes belt is given the importance it has and is a party shared with their peers, their teacher, their gym and their families.
Last Tuesday, the yellow belt pass ceremony of the first-year children of the APIR JUDO project took place in the Casco Antiguo facilities in Logroño (Spain). It is an act full of great symbolism and meaning since the judoka leaves his belt white and collects his yellow, with what he feels he participates in judo and a group. He is no longer a kid who comes to try a sport, but he is a young judoka who has shown his involvement and work. He is anxious to have this belt and looks forward to coming next year to help the new students, as they helped him.
"I only keep four judo belts in my house: white, yellow, brown and black, white because it was the beginning in distant 1988 in Madrid, yellow because I felt very important and valued. because he accompanied me during fifteen years of my life, moments of competition and that he did not value to go to black belt, which was a serious mistake but there is no turning back, and of course, the black belt that for me was as if they gave me again the white but as a teacher, every day learning to get your new yellow belt for your knowledge ... And it is quite difficult to enjoy your new yellow belt and value it as it is a big step in your evolution as judokas. " said Professor Olivenza at the beginning of the ceremony.

The children were quite excited as the delivery of belts was witnessed by their relatives, their companions and by members of the Pro Infancia Riojana association. The symbolism of the ceremony is that the teacher names the judoka, who puts himself in a kneeling position in front of him. He asks him if he thinks he deserves to own the yellow belt and nods his head. The teacher in front of everyone admits that they are worthy of said belt and recites two sentences that the founder of judo, JIGORO KANO, pronounced:
"Only those who visit with CONSTANCY, WISDOM AND ABOVE ALL HUMILITY are close to perfection."
"To know a little more each day and to USE IT EVERY DAY FOR WELL, is the true form of judo."
The teacher says this phrase so that everyone present realizes that Judo is something more than a sport, more than a martial art, it is a way of life and children have to know that they are part of something very big that with effort It may make them better people and citizens of the world.
Then the teacher places the yellow belt in front of him, and proceeds to remove the white belt that he places in front of the student. He changes places and places his student's yellow belt. They greet each other on their knees, get up and perform the standing salute. The student stands next to the teacher and presents the new yellow belt to the class, to the relatives and to all APIR, who show their respect by making the greeting. A very emotional act that we do every year, but that to me as a teacher moves me more and more.
At the end of the delivery of all the belts, the new yellows are placed next to the teacher and salute their relatives with respect, ending the small act.

"Take into account dear students that the step you have taken is very important and that I am very proud of you, but I want you to take into account one thing and never forget it: Those who have to be proud of you are yourselves , and you must do things to feel fulfilled and well, enjoy your belt with your family because you have earned it with your effort and dedication.The next day you will begin the path for a new step in Judo and here we will be to help you. " Teacher Olivenza concluded.
