Imagine the surprise of those who participating in the Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Open Championship 2022 found themselves fighting with Mr. Edward Hardy, for all Tom, a Hollywood star with films like Mad Max: Fury Road and The Dark Knight Rises. It must have been a nice shock but it would be naive to think that the British interpreter took home the tournament only thanks to the surprise effect.
A true warrior

The passion of Tom Hardy for martial arts is now well known. The actor has also played a fighter on the big screen, in the popular film Warrior 2011. Unlike Tommy Riordan’s character, Hardy is not an MMA fan, however. The actor is in fact a blue belt in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, a discipline in which he seems to be doing quite well. In August, he had already beaten the competition at the REORG Open Jiu-Jitsu Championship in Wolverhampton, winning in both categories (with and without kimono, GI and NO-GI). To guarantee his qualities on that occasion was also one of his opponents, Danny Appleby who said: “I was shocked. But he said to me ‘Forget who I am and do what you would normally do’. He is a very strong guy, you would never think that given his celebrity status of him. I have done about six tournaments and am always greeting on the podium. But he’s probably the toughest opponent he’s ever faced – he certainly lived up to Bane (the villain played by Hardy in The Dark Knight – The Return, ed.), that’s for sure “. Evidently that success must not have been enough for him.
The night of Jiu-Jitsu

Tom Hardy has decided to show up with his first name, Edward Hardy, in the gymnasium of a college in the English city of Milton Keynes. The school building would have been the theater of the Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Open Championship 2022 in those days and no one, except the organizers, knew at first that a movie star was actually hiding behind that Mr. Edward Hardy. As if that weren’t enough, the actor put on a show even once the fight started, going so far as to win the gold medal. The actor is therefore also a credible fighter in short, even if many were amazed by his availability. One of the spokespersons for the event spoke enthusiastically about the star at the Guardian: “He’s a really nice guy. Everyone recognized him, but he was very humble and was happy to take the time to allow people to be photographed with him. It was a real pleasure to see him compete in our event ”. In short, the soul of a true English gentleman always hides behind the skin of the wrestler.
