Tomer Alroy: Record, Net Worth, Weight, Age & More!


Who Is Tomer Alroy?

Tomer Alroy is an Israeli black belt in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and a highly regarded coach and competitor. He’s trained in the sport for well over a decade and had the chance to coach and train at some of the best gyms across the globe. Through his website,, he advocates a BJJ Lifestyle that incorporates full time competing, training, coaching, and even a psychology degree into his practice. 

What this article covers:

Timer is must known as a competitor for the international Soul Fighters team. Soul Fighters, established in 2008, is a renowned Brazilian Jiu Jitsu team formed by esteemed individuals who were once part of the Kioto BJJ Academy (led by Francisco Mansur) and the Brazilian Top Team. With a strong foundation, the team swiftly rose to prominence in the world of BJJ, owing to its exceptional coaching and a roster of exceptional athletes.

Notably, legendary competitors like Augusto "Tanquinho" Mendes, João Gabriel Rocha, and Diogo "Moreno" have consistently showcased their skill and earned prestigious medals at the black belt level in the World Championships. Soul Fighters' commitment to excellence has solidified its position among the top contenders in the BJJ community.

Tomer, like many young Israeli men, did a tour of duty in the military as a martial artist before ever competing on the international circuit. He has dedicated his entire life to martial arts, starting his journey in karate at the young age of just four years old. Later, at age eighteen, he made a significant move by joining the army as a Krav Maga instructor in the Israeli Defense Special Forces. 

He was at first only interested in the most deadly applications for martial arts, as showcased in Krav Maga. Soon, he became willing to consider other applications as well, and his BJJ lifestyle was born. It was actually his father's introduction to the UFC that sparked his interest in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, despite the lack of official training sources in Israel at the time.

Together with his father, he turned to online platforms like YouTube and DVD orders to learn the art of BJJ. As the BJJ community in Israel grew, he found himself training at "MMA Israel," which later transformed into "Soul Fighters Israel" under the guidance of Professor Amir Boaron, a black belt under the Mendes brothers.

Under Amir's guidance, Tomer Alroy began to develop a newfound passion for competing, even though he initially disliked the idea. His first taste of victory came in a small competition in Cyprus, where he secured the first-place position, igniting a fierce addiction to competitive BJJ.

Amidst his training and competitions, Amir continually motivated him to strive for excellence and embrace the complete BJJ lifestyle. This encompassed healthy eating, team spirit, and setting audacious goals that pushed him beyond his limits. 

Alongside his athletic pursuits, he is currently pursuing a psychology degree with a focus on sport psychology at the IDC College in Israel. Balancing his studies, full-time athletic career, and personal training, his vision is to become a world champion, serving as an inspiration to others by showcasing the power of conquering fears and continually striving for personal growth.

Finally, Tomer is a content creator for BJJ Fanatics. He’s worked with us to add two awesome offerings to the BJJ Fanatics storefront: “Competition Tested Gi Training” & “Guard Passing Master Class”, which are primers into the competitive game that helped Tomer learn the Brazilian art from his home country of Israel. Check it out for world class tips from this lifelong martial artist, Soul Fighter representative, and former IDF Special Forces instructor.

Tomer Alroy Fight List

Tomer Alroy has been an active competitor in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu for several years. Before that, he was a competitor in Krav Maga, Karate, and other combat sports. He was also a Special Forces instructor for the IDF, his countries’ intelligence agency. His most impressive year in competition was 2019, where Alroy competed an incredible twelve times in one year. 

Something unique to Tomer is that he competes in both Gi and No Gi at every tournament, testing his skills against athletes who spend a whole year specializing in only one or the other. Let’s take a zoomed in look at Tomer’s 2019:

  • 2019 IBJJF European Open
  • 2019 UAEJJ British National Open No Gi - 1st Place
  • 2019 IBJJF Budapest Open - 1st Place Gi & No Gi (Double Gold)

Tomer Alroy's Best Fight of All Time

Tomer Alroy's best tournament victory of all time came in 2019 at the 2019 United World Wrestling Munich Open. Although Tomer has claimed double gold on many occasions, and even a double bronze later that same year, he’s never captured triple gold the way he did at this tournament. 

Tomer signed up for the tournament in both gi and no gi, testing himself against specialists who dedicate themselves to one style over the other. Impressively, he not only cleared out his weight class at black belt in both styles, but he also tossed aside the competition on his way to absolute gold as well. This tournament result cemented Alroy as an all time European great and put his name on the international scene.

Who Did Tomer Alroy Lose To?

Tomer Alroy competes against the very best in the jiu jitsu world at an international level. A unique trait that he has is the desire to do so in both Gi and No Gi styles at once. As a result, Tomer frequently finds himself standing across from black belts with significantly more mat time dedicated to the particular style than he has spent as a generalist.

As a result, like any grappler, he loses sometimes. One such time prevented him from earning double gold at the 2019 Austin Open, where he was able to win gold in No Gi but was forced to retire for the day as a silver medalist in gi. The man who stopped him was Gilson Nunes, a dedicated brazilian jiu jitsu black belt who competes for Evolution and Checkmat. This loss was a frustration for Tomer, but just a minor one. He went on to continue dominating his division and didn’t let this experience deter him from gi competitions, where his advantage is less noticeable.

Tomer Alroy Record

Tomer Alroy's professional grappling competition record is unknown, but his tournament victories speak for themselves. He’s clearly a top level black belt and one of the deadliest lightweight jiu jitsu players alive.

Tomer Alroy Injuries

Tomer Alroy hasn’t been public with any injuries. He competed heavily in 2019 where he earned piles of IBJJF hardware for his efforts. Before that, he was in the Israel Special Forces. In both cases, Alroy has accompanied his grappling with an intense physical conditioning routine that’s kept him healthy on the mats.

Is Tomer Alroy Retired?

Tomer is nowhere near retired, having had his very best year as a black belt competitor in 2019. He’s also still a certified Krav Maga instructor for military applications, which we think is a little different than family Krav Maga. He now lives what he calls “The BJJ Lifestyle”, which involves a full time schedule of training, traveling, coaching, and competing. Alroy is living the dream!

When he takes a moment to touch back down on Earth, Tomer is a phenomenal instructor with a track record of training both soldiers and civilians. He teamed up with us here at BJJ Fanatics in order to create “Competition Tested Gi Training” and “Guard Passing Master Class” which are aimed at providing you with the best training modalities available. Take a look at Tomer’s comprehensive guide to the fundamentals of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu today!
