It seems that Tom Hardy, the world-famous actor, isn’t going to stop with competing in BJJ anytime soon. He competed for a total of three times in August and September, winning gold at each tournament…
And he is going to compete in at least two more BJJ events until the end of 2022!

According to Bloody Elbow, the 45-year old actor is planning to compete in two UK tournaments, on back-to-back weekends. He signed up for the No Gi Jiu Jitsu British Open (December 3) and for Grappling Industries: London (December 11).
Given that he’s last competed as a four stripe blue belt, Hardy is currently entered to compete at the same belt rank.
At the British Open, Hardy’s registered to join the 79.5kg (175.3lb) Master 3 division. And at Grappling Industries, he’s scheduled to compete at both their gi and no-gi round robin tournaments – at the 185lb Seniors division.
It goes without saying that it’ll be very interesting to see how the “Venom” and “Dark Knight Rises” star will fare at these two tournaments, given his previous successes.
And, even though he seems to prefer competing without much fanfare, Hardy’s presence at these events will surely add to BJJ’s worldwide popularity.
