Tom Hardy wins yet another Jiu-Jitsu championship after emphatic finish

The mums were loving him

Hollywood superstar Tom Hardy has once again proven that his tough guy image isn't just limited to the screen, after coming first in yet another Jiu-Jitsu competition at a local school sports hall, in Milton Keynes.


The Peaky Blinders star wowed jiu-jitsu fighters at a charity event in Wolverhampton last month - winning every match by submission and securing himself a gold medal.

His opponent in the semi-final of the REORG event - the mental health charity which Hardy is an ambassador for - admitted he was forced to tap out for fear of getting his arm broken by the actor.

And on Saturday, 45-year-old Hardy surprised fighters and spectators again, turning up to compete at Oakgrove School's sports hall in Milton Keynes.


Hardy, a high-level blue belt, came first in his section after beating every single fighter he competed against.

Sean Rosborough, who sponsored the event, said organisers kept the actor's planned appearance at the competition "to themselves" in a bid to stop masses of people "distracting" him.


But Hardy was said to still be "brilliant" with fans who approached him - a lot of whom were mums.

Rosborough said: "A lot of people were asking for photos, and coming up to him, and he had no problem with that all. The mums were all over him. It didn’t bother him.

"We tried not to bother him too much. We didn’t pap him to bits. We just tried to keep it as normal as possible for him. I think he had a good time."

Speaking about the Dark Knight star's jiu-jitsu skills, Rosborough said: "When he was fighting, he was focused on what he was doing. He’s amazing at Jiu-Jitsu.

"I saw his matches, and he had submissions in them all - and they were really quick.

"He did really, really well. He’s not the highest grade, but you could see he had turned up to win, and he was impressive in every fight."
