Martial challengers aikido’d in rural MN town

This situation happened a few months back and i’ve been meaning to write it up for awhile now.

I was waiting late at night at a transit station in a rural, mid-sized town, when i looked up to see a masked person approaching from the dark, along with a non-masked youth. A Latino (?) man was walking in front of them and was on the phone. He seemed a bit wary. I thought about asking if he was alright, but didn’t.

Next thing i know, these two guys (one wearing a mask from “v for vengeance”) approached me, one cracking his knuckles as if expecting a similar type of macho-like reaction.

Well, my practicings of “the crucial arts” paid off that night!

i simply ignored their apparent intent and began engaging them as i have long been engaging diverse sorts of folks. And ended up “bridging” with them quite excellently, if i may say so myself!

Even inspired them, i think, with the idea of wearing that mask WHILE carrying a sign reading “Free Hugs”.

Both were teenagers, i’d guess. One, un-masked, said he was 17. i decided they were typical youths being programmed for war (at home and where-ever else their “betters” seek). Utilizing my “creative intelligence” i pivoted away from reacting as they seemed to want me to react (in fear), and did a little creative “aikido”, i guess. Not seeking to hoodwink them, but inspire them beyond the same old stupidized approaches to finding adventure in an otherwise sedated town.

Perhaps i’ll give more details later.

Question: have you experienced such challenge and have anecdotes to share? Feel free to add them to the comments section and i’ll try to get them posted asap.
