Strength Within Self Defense defines self-defense as anything you say, do, think, or believe that helps keep you or others safe.  Strength Within takes a holistic approach and believes that self-care is the foundation of self-defense. Participants are encouraged to adapt a growth mindset as they develop mental, emotional, physical and verbal safety strategies.
