TNT Academy and R.E.A.L. Krav Maga

TNT Academy

TNT Academy, as it is today, is the result of over 26 years (and it`s still counting) of martial arts experience. It was established in April 2010, primarily to serve its customers on a private training basis only. Then Tamas soon realised the need for a club where values like loyalty, hard work, reliability and fairness come before everything else, that is free of egos and politics, focuses on what`s actually working in real life and has a no-nonsense approach to self-defence. In September 2010 the work started to transform the club into a full scale operation. As a result, the club ran its first lesson in October 2010.

Since then we`ve been a member of different organisations and experienced the Krav Maga world first hand. Tamas has been the secretary of one the biggest organisations for about 5 years and, one of their two highest level instructors in the UK. He has also been a country representative and director for the UK of another organisation.
A massive impact on the club`s approach took place when Tamas started working on the front line as a Door Supervisor for a huge club in Reading, Berkshire where he was a member of a 17 strong team. He then moved to a small pub in Abingdon, Oxfordshire, where he was the only doorman. From here he was promoted to run the security team for one of the largest pubs in Oxford City Centre, which he did for 2.5 years. All of these experiences led to one conclusion: TNT Academy focuses on principles rather than techniques.
The next huge step for the club happened in April 2018 when 4 of Tamas`s friends and closest students got qualified and joined the club as instructors. The club keeps growing and is constantly on the lookout for students who share the TNT vision and would like to become instructors with the club or on their own.

R.E.A.L. Krav Maga:

What is R.E.A.L. Krav Maga?

R – realistic, E – effective, A – adaptive, L – logical

In 2019 Tamas and his highest level students established the organisation due to the increasing demand for a simple, direct, effective and “tested in real life” self defence system in order to provide the best tuition in the most professional way that`s fact based and backed by science. Our system uses these four pillars due to our life experience. We have 50+ combined years’ worth of front line experience as door supervisors, head door supervisors and an ex-police officer.

The system is Realistic because not only have we studied both a few other Krav Maga styles and different martial arts, like: Aikido, Eskrima/Kali, Muay Thai but we had the chance to test countless techniques in real life scenarios so we have a pretty good understanding about what works in real life and what is just a myth.

Our techniques are Effective because we have had to use many of them and so far, we came out winning every altercation we were involved in. Put simply: if it doesn`t work we don`t train it.

Our system is Adaptive as we know that every situation is different. Techniques have to work for everyone, both for a smaller defender against a bigger attacker and the other way round. They have to work when it`s raining in a dark alleyway or in bright sunshine on the beach.

Logical as it builds on the natural instincts. It doesn`t try to teach long, new patterns like a kata in martial arts. Our system is principle led and not technique led like many other Krav Maga styles. Once someone understands the principles the correct technical executions suddenly become less important.
