Thunderbolt Martial Arts (formerly Infinite Path) is a private learning institution dedicated to the study of self-defense, martial arts, fitness, and meditation. We practice in the Shaolin tradition: Our primary objective is personal/spiritual growth; not sport and competition. Only methods that honor the health, function, and longevity of the body are utilized in our training.

He has studied the martial philosophy Yue Chia Chuan Fa (Chinese)/Ken Do Gaku (Japanese) since 1994, Yoga since 1995, Tai Chi since 1997. He has also earned ranks in Karate and Aikido (teachers include Lee Beusking, Katsumi Niikura, Frank Merditaj, and Thomas F. Smith).

Smith in Yue Chia/Ken Do Gaku at the Shaolin Temple of Michigan (est. in 1985, Westland). Christopher Scafone is also an expert in drug-free personal training (resistance and fitness training). Christopher Scafone has been teaching martial arts professionally since 1996.
Robyn Scafone has studied Yue Chia Chuan Fa since 1997 and Yoga since 1999. She holds a 3rd degree black sash in Yue Chia/Ken Do Gaku. Mrs. Scafone is a lifelong artist whose photography, paintings, and illustrations have gained a world-wide following.
The Scafone's founded Infinite Path Martial Arts in 2002 in Clawson, MI, where they helped thousands of students of all ages throughout the Metro Detroit area enjoy the many benefits of serious mind/body training.
In 2013, the Scafone's relocated to Northern Michigan for the birth of their daughter. During this period, the Scafone's experienced a deeper martial and spiritual awakening, and a renewed sense of purpose for their organization. The Scafone's returned to the Metro Detroit area in 2017, now operating under the name, Thunderbolt Martial Arts.
