Last weekend, Tom Hardy, 44, competed in the UK’s first REORG Charity Open as a four-lane blue belt, ultimately winning gold in both the Gi and No-Gi categories.
REORG is a charity organization that helps veterans and military doctors who have experienced depression, trauma, and PTSD. This organization includes Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu as part of its treatment program, and this tournament is open to anyone who wants to register.
Tom has been involved in BJJ since 2011, when he appeared in the MMA film ‘Warrior’, and will occasionally train. Today he is a four-door blue belt (a beginner) and is expected to take his next purple belt (someone who has mastered all the techniques initially), and his fight videos have been recognized by many professionals.
