There is no reference to Gatka in SGGS Bani.
The answer to your question is yes, The Gatka, the art of war, definitely started with Sri Guru Hargobind Sahib when he started to organize an army.
The level of the sophistication and ferocity GATKA attained in the time of Guru Gobind Singh Ji may developed slowly over time.
Guru Gobind Singh Ji started the only Sikhi festival, HOLA MAHALLA, other than Gurpurabs, to sharpen the fighting skills of his forces. Definitely GATKA was part of the fighting skills.
