Yep I have to agree, this is a last resort type of technique. If you have no option to retreat, or cannot due to a moral obligation to intervene than pulling a Clint Eastwood may be an option. I would still prefer to have a backup plan such as a good hand to hand skills, which unfortunatly I do not, or oc spray or a knife or gun. There may be times though than a display of such force may actually tip the agressor over the edge. There have been other post that mention not "looking like a victum" as being a way to prevent being a victum. Also by acting calm and confident you did break the agressors OODA loop. He didn;t know what to make of your confidence. He wasn't sure why you were not scared of him and that made him think maybe there was a reason he should be scared of you.

Right, I would not like to have repeat performances nightly of this event.

You tend to blend in more for "the guys" standing around - you accept them as not needing any special reaction from you - and they do the same towards you.
-"Just some guys standing around chatting".........
-"Just some guy walking by"..................
my experience anyway, and one I've frequently seen in large cities..........
