Tom Hardy might be known for his acting skills but apparently, the Hollywood star has some crazy skills on the BJJ mat as well.
Hardy is a lead ambassador for REORG BJJ Foundation which was launched in association with the Royal Marines Charity to provide a platform for serving personnel and veterans to learn BJJ.
The actor recently showed up at the Reorg Event in the United Kingdom and impressed everyone with his submission skills. One user on Twitter noted that Hardy submitted two opponents via armbar when one user posted a video of Hardy pulling off the armbar on his opponent.
“Tom Hardy is an animal on the BJJ Mat. He’s had two fights, won both by armbar,” a user called RobbiePoirier10 noted.
The 44-year-old Hardy has been training BJJ for a long time now and has earned himself a blue belt as well. You can see the video of Tom Hardy submitting his opponent at the end of the article.
