Want to replacing parent action of customiser theme? I think you’re making it way more complex, to modify the output of the tc_colophon_center_block() method, than it has to be.
Just use the tc_credits_display filter:
add_filter( 'tc_credits_display', function( $html )
// Modify output to your needs!
