Actor Tom Hardy, known for his leading roles in movies such as ‘Mad Max: Fury Road’ and ‘The Dark Knight Rises’, has recently been promoted to purple belt in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ). Hardy has been an active competitor in BJJ since he began participating at the blue belt level in 2022, and has achieved a notable collection of gold medals from tournaments across the United Kingdom.
Despite the challenges of maintaining a regular training schedule due to his demanding career in film, Hardy has managed to train with some of the best in other countries, including renowned coach John Danaher.
Hardy’s promotion was originally announced through a cryptic Instagram post, which was later confirmed by the belt manufacturer he tagged in a follow-up post. He joins the ranks of other celebrity BJJ competitors such as Zoltan Bathory and Mario Lopez, but has quickly become one of the most successful competitors among them.
Hardy’s passion for BJJ and dedication to his training have enabled him to achieve this latest milestone in his martial arts journey.
