Actor Tom Hardy has been working on his jiu-jitsu alongside the Royal Marines in an attempt to help them bring attention to a cause near and dear to their heart.

Earlier this spring, The REORG Jiu Jitsu Foundation launched, in association with The Royal Marines Charity. Their mission is to provide a platform for serving personnel and veterans to learn Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, as part of their recovery pathway and to combat the challenge of mental health and physical disabilities. The REORG team trains all levels & abilities from all services, right across the UK.
