some form of "less than lethal" stimulus, usually as pain, which toes the line oh so carefully between death and pain so bad you wish you were dead.
contemporary examples include oft cited non lethal weapons such as tear gasm pepper spray, rubber bullets, and the taser.
it has been said that non-lethal weapons such as pepper spray and tasers are most effective on all forms of crowd control, as pain is something we all understand... drunk or sober.

Kendo which translates literally to 'The Way of the Sword', is a contemporary Japanese martial art that evolved from the traditions of the samurai, the warrior class of ancient Japan, based upon sword fencing techniques developed over centuries of combat. Like many Japanese martial arts, the philosophical foundations of Kendo revolve around the precepts of Zen Buddhism, and the guiding belief that enlightenment and heightened awareness, flow from the ability to focus and calm the mind. Following in the footsteps of the samurai, modern practitioners of Kendo, or 'Kendoka', as they are called, strive not only to master the physical techniques of the Japanese sword, but, also, the mental and spiritual aspects as well. Although Kendo’s roots lie with the ancient samurai, the art has evolved over the centuries, adapting as societal conditions changed, to its present form where competition between practitioners involves not life and death combat with razor sharp blades, but controlled matches governed by strict rules of conduct, and non-lethal instruments. This difference in focus, distinguishes Kendo from 'Kenjutsu', which is also a Japanese sword art deriving from traditional fencing. Unlike Kendo, whose techniques are updated for practice as a non-lethal aesthetic, Kenjutsu’s primary focus is combat and warfare, and as such, closely parallels the actual lethal techniques employed by the samurai on the field of battle.more...

TOFTS = Too Old For This Shit.
TOFTS is an acronym of Danny Glover's famous line from the 1987 movie, Lethal Weapon. Ironically, using the expression "TOFTS" signifies how non-lethal one has become, because he/she is simply too old, for this shit. Utterance of the phrase usually indicates a tired disdain for the subject at hand, though not necessarily arrogance or elitism; often the subject will begrudgingly still engage in the subject (ala Danny Glover's character in Lethal Weapon).

Danny Glover: T.O.F.T.S.
