Hey there Students, Parents, and Friends of Invictus Martial Arts! We are so looking forward to having everyone back in the school training as soon as possible. It looks like we will be able to start having some modified classes with a maximum of 10 people per class starting next week. Phase 2 is supposed to commence in North Carolina on Friday, May 22nd, however with Governor Cooper's last minute changes to Phase 2, we will be modifying our opening plans to consist of summer camp classes only. As we open, we will continue to make sure we provide a safe and sanitary environment for every one of our students. If you do not feel comfortable coming back into the school to train yet, worry not, we will be continuing our classes on Zoom as well! Students, please log in to the student section for the new schedule of classes. We will also be starting to schedule introductory lessons for new students in person as well as through Zoom, whichever you would prefer so if you are ready to start your martial arts journey with us, now is the time!
We will be making sure to stay in line with the recommended safety precautions and will be sanitizing pads, equipment, and mats regularly. Here are the procedures that you can expect to see at our school as we reopen:
Mother-Daughter Self-Defense Class
Posted: April 28, 2020
Invictus Martial Arts will be offering a Mother/Daughter Self-Defense Class on May 9th starting at 1:30pm. This will be a FREE class that is open to our students and community to help spread awareness of how to deal with a potentially violent situation and also give you something to do together as a family while cooped up in the house! We will be going through various combatives you can use to eliminate the threat of an attacker, use of defensive tactics, and awareness drills that we use in our Krav Maga curriculum. Please wear clothing you are comfortable with working out in and make sure you have enough space around you prior to the class.
This will be a virtual class and hosted on the app Zoom. Please make sure to download the app before the class so you do not run into any technical difficulties with getting in. The Zoom meeting room link will be provided once you register. I look forward to seeing everyone on Zoom and Happy Mothers' Day!

COVID-19 Day Camps
Posted: March 16, 2020
Invictus Martial Arts has been working diligently to work with our local community to lessen the impact on our students', parents', and friends' lives. We have decided to partner with a local fully licensed substitute teacher with over 30 years of experience to provide a fun and educational day camp for families where the parents still have to work but need a place for their kids to go or if you just would like an activity for your children during the day. This will not only provide support to some of our local families, but also to a teacher that would otherwise be missing out on their income. The camp will operate from 8:00am-3:00pm Monday through Friday until school resumes. There will be weekly rates and daily rates available (see below), however, we are limiting attendance to 20 children. Please have children bring a sack lunch with two snacks and please be considerate of others with food allergies. For that reason, we request that you not pack anything with peanuts in it as it is one of the most common allergies. Students will be learning basic martial arts skills throughout the day, participating in fun activities with a martial arts twist, and various learning activities with the teacher that will be appropriate for the students' grade level.
Joint Manipulation Seminar
Posted: March 09, 2020
Invictus Martial Arts will be hosting a joint manipulation seminar on Saturday, March 21st, 2020 starting at 10:00am. This seminar will teach the basics of joint manipulation through the guidance of Master Max Crucitti. This two hour seminar will get you the basic understanding of joint positions that can be used to control and/or eliminate a threat.
Space is limited to the first 20 people that sign up for the event so make sure you get signed up early for this event! Cost is $10 for Invictus Martial Arts Members and $20 for non-members. This event is for ages 8+. Sign up can be done on our Facebook event, CLICK HERE or at our front desk!

Hulafrog - Most Loved Martial Arts School 2020
It was just announced that we have been voted Hulafrog's Most Loved Martial Arts School 2020 in Wilmington, NC! We have our amazing students, parents, and friends to thank for voting for us. We are thrilled that the community has enjoyed our classes as much as we love teaching them. Serving our community and providing quality and professional martial arts training is what we do and we are very proud of it! We chose a very appropriate name for this school, Invictus Martial Arts. Invictus means "unconquerable spirit." Developing self-confidence is so important to anyone looking to improve themselves, whatever age they may be. Did you know that you can be any age 3+ and get started in martial arts? We have students from 3 years old all the way up to 70+ years old! If you have been on the fence about starting martial arts yourself, or getting your children involved in martial arts, we would love to invite you to try a class with us to see how martial arts training can change your life. From learning valuable life skills for you and your children like discipline, respect, integrity, and confidence to getting in better shape and learning life saving self-defense skills, we can help you accomplish your goals. We are very excited to see what 2020 brings for us and to continue to expand by helping develop leaders within our local Wilmington community. We can't wait to see you on the mat with us!
