Jim Hagen, a 75 yr old brown belt in BJJ, has been a student of the sport for a decade. His training base is the Gentle Art Studio in Queens NY, and his instructor is Eduardo Santos. In a recent interview, Hagen said that when he initially began learning BJJ, he was told that everyone would be pleasant and that he would find the sport addictive. Both of those things, he said, have turned out to be correct. Hagen went on to say that he loves jiu-jitsu, because when he is rolling on the mat it makes him feel like he is a child again, and it gives him a sense of freedom.
