Tom Hardy wins the British Jiu-Jitsu competition

Tom Hardy just added another interesting accolade to his CV. He won an open jiu-jitsu tournament in Great Britain. Hardy seems like a real tough guy in the movies, for sure. But how much of that is the roles he plays and how much is really him? Well, it sure looks like he really has the goods.

There are a number of Hollywood stars who seem like incredibly skilled fighters on screen, but there are also plenty of those same fighters who probably couldn’t hold their own in a street fight. Of course he is no Lane in real life and he is not tied to one symbiote from spacebut his grappling game must be on point.

On Saturday, September 17, Hardy competed in the UMAC Milton Jeynes Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Open. He entered the MALE GI / BLUE / MASTER 3 (41+) division and ended up taking home the gold. It is the highest ranked blue belt division, which is only one step down from the highest belt.

According to The Guardian, a rep for the event talked about how humble and kind Hardy was throughout the whole thing, which is always nice to hear. He said: “Everyone recognized him but he was very humble and was happy to take time for people to take pictures with him… It was a real pleasure to have him compete at our event.”

Hardy’s opponent was quoted as saying “I was shocked,” Appleby said. “[Hardy] said, ‘Just forget it’s me and do what you would normally do.’” Oh yes, it’s really easy. No problem. You only fight Venom!
