In the early 1980s, Thomas had commenced training on a daily basis in Judo from adolescence with a very distinguished teacher only to, later on, realize that it wasn’t the right martial art for him. A few years later, in January 1985, he began learning Goju-ryu karate under the instruction of Shihan Chris Rowen, 7th dan, who was a 3rd dan Sensei at the time and also a student of Kaiso (Founder) Gogen Yamaguchi, 10th dan.

Thomas took a break from competing and training in 1992 to focus more on his academic studies. After a two year gap, in 1994, he returned to Karate training under the instruction of Shihan Vic Charles MBE where he was taught Wado-ryu Karate at the N-16 Fitness Centre, opened by Charles in 1992, in the heart of Stoke Newington, Hackney.

Since retiring from Karate competitions, Thomas has endured a brief stint in the British Army as a Signaller, worked in the private security industry as a Close Protection Operative and Media Security Advisor. He is currently focusing on his acting and filmmaking career.
