I'm a fairly big guy, and once upon a time I was trained to neutralize threats, but there's no way to predict the outcome, so it makes sense to not provoke a response from such a person if possible.
I am not big, but I counter that with how loud I can be. I was also trained to neutralize threats physically. But I prefer to do it verbally.
