In the photo, the characters of the structure created in 1991, including Anne-Marie Ibanez, thirty years of “box”, pay seven hours a week, and volunteer the rest of the time. “She’s there every day, morning and night, she knows everyone, and she’s seen them grow up,” identified Florence Fromento in charge of communications and vice president Sarah Cadenoch (Philip Vadoze is president).
The gym was moved, carried out from August 22 to 27, with the support of two municipal agents, a telescopic cart to take down very large and heavy machines from the dojo floor, and a truck for transport. Everything is now in place. Officials specified, “The association is happy to receive members under better conditions.”
The new 770 m2 building, spread over two floors of 365 m2 and a mezzanine of 40 m2, intended to host union activities, was launched by former Mayor Guy Polo’s team, in parallel with other sports activities: rugby, football and shooting range. The current municipality imagined the interior design, and made adjustments to the initial project “in order to allow more variety, with the constraints of the completed exterior envelope,” specifying city services.
The building, whose structure was delivered in 2020, consists of two levels: the ground floor for the Ziburu Donibane Gym, and the first floor, which will house the new tatami mats for the judo and jiu-jitsu club. This should make its mark in October in a large bright room. An elevator was added to the project to accommodate people with reduced mobility, rooftop thermal panels for water heating, and two small rooms on the first floor for other assembly activities.
“Sibor has 80 cultural and sports associations, which is a lot for a city of 6,200,” recalls Municipal Councilor Anton Billiot in charge of sports. “The previous team planned this building to house the gymnasium and judo club, we added two associations. Thus, Break’in Studio, the sports dance association (hip-hop, tap, etc.) located between the dojo and the two Maison Des associations will use one of the two small rooms in Upstairs.
It would be the same for Arte Goxoa Akademia, Brazilian jiu-jitsu enthusiasts (between martial arts and defense sport). Other buildings may be housed in the new building, after consultation on the allocation of rooms and times. “We will study the difficulties and requests to best distribute the different rooms,” reassures the sports official.
On the ground floor, multi gymnastics and bodybuilding enthusiasts benefit from the main machine room, a room dedicated to group lessons (gym tonic, strengthening, stretching, abs and buttocks), and, like all site users, have access to the garden. For the time being a vacant lot, mowed by city services, which should be landscaped and possibly planted with trees, in order to screen the nearby A63 and provide shaded areas for outdoor lessons.
Private gyms did little damage to Ziburu Donibane Gym. But the family spirit, the variety of courses and the quality of the equipment attract members. Inclined weight bench, back machine and squat rack will be delivered soon. “The contribution is reasonable and you can pay in installments,” the officials noted.
control of the earth
The transfer of judo clubs and gymnasium from Dogo municipality is part of the management of the land required for the Inkan Deferred Development Area (ZAD) project. This is 6.6 hectares in the city center, between Aristide-Bourousse Avenue and Erreperira Street, encroaching on the Marinela and Zubiburu districts, which will see the emergence of a new area with housing and businesses.
