I have been training at TNT for about two years and it has become an indispensable part of my daily routine. Since training at TNT I have become a more resilient and capable martial artist and athlete. The classes are taught by instructors with years of experience in professional competition and coaching. I’m currently taking Brazilian Jiujitsu and MMA classes and I could not be more satisfied with the results I have seen in my fitness, effectiveness, and confidence. I also see that newcomers are always welcomed and treated well which makes me proud to be part of such an inclusive group. Every world champion had a first day of training so no previous experience is required. I have seen people of all physical stature and athletic abilities succeed here and have personally witnessed TNT turn lambs into lions.

Going to TNT has been more than awesome. Without this amazing team I would have never started having and enjoying an active lifestyle or had a reason to. I've lost about fifty pounds in a year and I feel great. Your mental strength and confidence will definitely go up. Come on down to our MMA class! We don't bite, everyone's learning, and super supportive.

TNT is an amazing place! Tim and Tamayah, as well as all the instructors, are very knowledgeable and inspiring people. I love the positive atmosphere; everyone is very welcoming and helpful. It's like a huge family! I highly recommend the MMA program, it has had an incredible impact on my life. Not only has my physical fitness and overall well being improved, but so has my self-confidence. I look forward to many, many years of training!

Love TNT. My daughter started when she was 4 and I have seen her confidence and strength increase from karate at TNT Martial Arts and Fitness. Thanks TNT!

TNT truly gave me results I wanted to reach. After three months of joining the TNT family, I dropped 20lbs, down a pants size, and down two dress sizes. TNT is more than just kickboxing, it is a family. We get to workout hard, sweat a lot, and joke around with each other just like family. TNT has allowed me to improve my confidence, core, strength, and overall health and fitness. I would recommend TNT to anyone!!!

We love TNT!! They are amazing with kid’s karate classes and make sure that all children are equally involved and they take the time to make sure they all understand. Their kickboxing class really kicks butt and gives you the best workout ever!! Thank you Tim and Tamayah and all of your amazing staff for all you do!! ❤️

I've been taking kickboxing classes at TNT for a year, and I've celebrated many non-scale victories since joining: increased stamina & strength; losing inches; feeling better overall; renewed self-confidence; finding new friends and a "family" of sorts 3 nights a week; and the best stress relieving workout EVER!
I cannot say enough awesome things about TNT Martial Arts & Fitness and the difference it has made in my life. The folks there (owners, staff, and partners in kickboxing crime) make me want to do better and try harder at every workout.
I would recommend TNT to anyone who wants to have a challenging workout!!

My son is learning so much he absolutely loves going every time! I am seeing some improvements with his behavior and he no longer worries about bullying (he's always the youngest kid in his class so usually the smallest) he loves the people and they have been super supportive for the both of us!

Update: Aidyn has been going for a little over a month now and his behavior is like night and day being a single mom is hard and this has made it a lot easier for me and him he has to keep up with his uniform and keep it clean his class is extremely important to him each time he goes he comes home so proud of what he's learned we are going to enroll him in the competition team starting next month and I can't wait to see what he learns tnt has helped him more than I can express definitely worth it

TNT is an amazing place!!! My son just started karate here about a month ago and has already learned so much! They truly take their time in teaching each and every child what they need to know! The instructors are amazing with the kids you can tell they really love what they do! The owners are also involved in everything and are amazing people. They have really made a great company! I am so blessed to be apart of this growing company! I can't wait to see how far my baby goes with these amazing people!!!

The Shopper’s Self Defense Guide

The Shopper’s Self Defense Guide

Holiday shopping can be a thrill. In a good way and even in a bad way. Adding a little self defense mentality can go a long way.

Self Awareness

You have society on your side. Potential criminals (for the most part) won’t just obnoxiously run up to you in front of a crowd and take your things.

These criminals are looking for an opportune situation. As long as you are aware of your surroundings, you can prevent yourself from ever falling into one of these situations.

Your own body is a part of your surroundings. It would be a foolish decision to count cash in public. This is something you should be aware of, and instead count your cash privately.

The ultimate holiday shopping self defense tip is to simply be aware. Be aware of where a potential pick pocket is, and what a potential pick pocket is looking for.

The Pick Pocket

Pickpockets thrive on holiday shopping. There are crowds of people, loaded with cash and jewelry who know nothing about practical self defense.

Get inside the mind of the pick pocket. They are looking for crowds. Pay attention when in a crowd. Don’t forget where all your belongings are.

Avoid dark areas. Keep your wallet in your front pockets. Don’t let your bag or purse hang behind you. Everything valuable should be positioned up front where your eyes and hands can follow them at all time.

Wear simple, comfortable, and non-flowing clothing. The biggest aspect of holiday shopping self defense is being prepared. Pay attention and stay safe.

Dealing With Your Car

Another holiday shopping hotspot for thieves is your vehicle.

Pay attention to where you parked. Don’t park in a dark corner. Park where it’s bright. Even if this means you have to park further away, putting yourself in a favorable position is the centerpiece of holiday shopping self defense.

Pay attention when you finish shopping. The walk back to you car is the most dangerous. The criminals know that you are finished with all of your holiday gifts and exhausted. Have your keys ready in hand, and don’t waste any time.

Pay attention to your surroundings, get to your car, and get out. If you are worried about your situation, then don’t be scared to ask a security guard to escort you.
