We consider Higgs-Higgs scattering in a minimal Higgs model with strong coupling which leads to the Higgs as a bound state. The partial wave amplitude is unitarized using general principles of analyticity. We find lambda(m_H)/16pi is approximately 1/2. A Higgs mass of approximately 1 TeV follows from m_H = sqrt{lambda/2} * v (spontaneous symmetry breaking).
