Scaling Force
Dynamic Decision Making
Under Threat of Violence
By Rory Miller and Lawrence A. Kane



Use too much force and you are going to jail.
Use too little force and you will be hurt.

In this 2-hour video, you will learn how to:

  • Stop violence before it happens.
  • Choose the right response.
  • Avoid going to jail for defending yourself.
Conflict and violence cover a broad range of behaviors, from intimidation to murder, and they require an equally broad range of responses. A kind word will not resolve all situations, nor will wristlocks, punches, or even a gun.

In the Scaling Force DVD, Rory Miller and Lawrence A. Kane explain and demonstrate the full range of options, from skillfully doing nothing to applying deadly force. You will learn to understand the limits of each type of force, when specific levels may be appropriate, the circumstances under which you may have to apply them, and the potential cost of your decision, legally and personally.

  • Level 1—Presence. Staving off violence using body language alone.
  • Level 2—Voice. Verbally de-escalating conflict before physical methods become necessary.
  • Level 3—Touch. Defusing an impending threat or gaining compliance via touch.
  • Level 4—Empty-Hand Restraint. Controlling a threat through pain or forcing compliance through leverage.
  • Level 5—Less-Lethal Force. Incapacitating a threat while minimizing the likelihood of fatality or permanent injury.
  • Level 6—Lethal Force. Stopping a threat with techniques or implements likely to cause death or grievous bodily harm.

It is vital to enter this scale at the right level, and to articulate why what you did was appropriate. If you do not know how to succeed at all six levels, there are situations in which you will have no appropriate options. More often than not, that will end badly.
