Are You Building Something Worth Defending?

Before practicing defense techniques, you need to be building something worth defending. In this part of the training, we discuss the Three Gardens: self, family, and church/community, and how to understand your roles and responsibilities in each arena—before a crisis happens.

A Practical Theology of Violence and Self Defense​

A biblical perspective on the sanctity of life is our foundation for self-defense and the application of force. You’ll learn key strategies for developing a resilient mindset so you can deescalate conflict while being prepared in the face of uncertainty
