Welcome to ESDA!

Eagles Self-Defense Academy was established in April 1994 and offers a martial arts curriculum designed for the entire family.  Your age, sex or physical status is not important.  Whether you are 3 or 103, male, female, in-shape or a little fluffy, you can benefit from our family atmosphere and tailored training.

We believe that helping students become more disciplined, self-reliant, confident and good examples is 90 percent of the training with Kicks and Punches consuming the remaining 10 percent.

We have 4 locations in Southside Hampton Roads to serve you!
