The International School of Sport with Heart is a non-profit entity. It started its activity in Spain in October 2010
and is currently present in ten cities: Madrid, Barcelona, Almería, Valencia, Jaén, Castellón, Cádiz, Alicante, Málaga and Bilbao. Plus, it is present in almost twenty countries, which include: Spain, Brazil, Canada, Paraguay, Bolivia, Russia, Ukraine, Israel, Czech Republic, Hungary, Romania, Slovakia, Germany, Colombia and Austria. The activities of this School of Sport is based upon three principles:
The spirit of the School of Sports is training body and mind. Our culture coined again the concept that was already written by the Roman poet Juvenal: “mens sana in corpore sano” (a healthy mind inside a health body), but forgot the deep meaning of this famous phrase: maintaining a balanced spirit within a healthy body.
We also take the Olympic motto “Citius, Altius, Fortius” (Faster, Higher, Stronger), a quote also adopted by Coubertin after he heard it from his friend, the Dominican Henri Martin Didon, a quote that symbolizes the struggle of humans to be better. We understand that the most important thing is being better and faster in fulfilling our responsibilities, being higher to take our thoughts and feelings to a higher level, and being stronger to overcome our weaknesses.
As Aristotle said: “In the Olympic Games, the ones crowned are not the mos beautiful or the strongest, but the ones who can compete. Also in life, the ones who act righteously are the ones who reach the prize”. That is why all the people who compete in the School of Sport are volunteers, and that is also why the Olympic Fire appears in our logo, as a universal symbol of Union.
Como diría Aristóteles: “En los juegos olímpicos no se corona a los más hermosos y a los más fuertes, sino a los que saben competir. También en la vida, los que actúan rectamente son quienes alcanzan el premio”
Por eso todos los que participan en la Escuela del Deporte son voluntarios y en nuestro logo aparece el Fuego olímpico como símbolo universal de Unión.
