The mission of Invictus Martial Arts is to transform lives through the martial arts by encouraging a wellness-focused lifestyle. As a private academy, we only work with individuals willing to commit to achieving long-term results. Invictus isn’t just another gym but a transformational resource for the community in health, wellness, and protection.

Invictus Martial Arts is co-owned and founded by Mr. Hackbarth and Mrs. Garza out of a shared desire to positively impact people’s lives through the martial arts. Mr. Hackbarth and Mrs. Garza experienced a transformational life-change through the physical discipline of martial arts training and developed a mindset of mastery and service to others. They have a shared passion to empower their members to be unleashed into their life-purpose and calling. While the physical benefits of martial arts training are numerous, the attitude, character, and mindset of a martial arts way of life will last a lifetime.
