As a pacifist, I believe in trying to find the most nonviolent solution to any conflict or confrontation. Violence is aggression, and aggression is violence. Using physical means to protect oneself when other methods of self-defense are unavailable or unfeasible is not violence or aggression, and as such, fits into the paradigm of pacifism.
