Thai Malik joined Tek with his brother in 2008 after already having martial arts experience elsewhere. Coach Thai now has over 10 years’ experience of martial arts and holds some impressive Tek achievements such as both Tek Student of the Year (2012) and Tek Coach of the Year (2014).


Thai successfully managed to train whilst also completing school, college and university, achieving 4 A-Levels and an Honours Degree in History. Thai now manages coaching at the Tek Academy, Tek Arnold and Tek Wollaton alongside a full-time job at his family-ran accountancy firm.


Thai now inspires many Tek students, after unfortunately failing his Tek Senior Black Belt in 2015. Thai used this as massive motivation to focus fully on his training, he worked non-stop for 2 year and actually successfully passed his 1st Degree Senior Black Belt in November 2017. Thai now brings great inspiration and motivation to all Tek students and shows what can happen through determination and dedication to training.
