comment How do I keep a safe distance from potential threats without escalating the situation?
Thanks! These are both quite helpful. I like that they are concrete actions to take.

Even though the video was pretty badly done, at least it made me aware of a technique that could quite literally keep a safe distance (control space).

This is very interesting, definitely an angle I didn't consider. How do I learn to train my body and mind to recognize reasonable threats from fears, as you said? If that'd make a good new question, I'll definitely post it. Also, thanks for pointing out that I have already developed the pattern, that hit home.

+1 and no idea why this was at -1, it's a good answer.

Thanks for the answer. I certainly don't want to be hyper vigilant and attract trouble. My concern with mu shin is that we don't do drills and sparring in Aikido which is my primary art (systema is my second art but I quite literally just began it). So frankly I'm concerned that I'd be unable to apply any of my training in a real situation where no-mind and no-posture (and no-preparation) are the realities of the encounter.

+1 for martial intent. Perhaps the difference between exercise and martial practice...
