TAI (actually T.A.I.) stands for Transitional Arts Inc.
They teach Kenpo, Jujitsu, Newaza, Kung Fu, Boxing and Escrima. Their theory for combining all these arts is so one can switch quickly from one form of defense to another when needed - thereby keeping an element of surprise against their opponent. Also, if finding themselves in a tight spot and unable do the kicks, etc., they have ways to get out of it easily.
