I worked for several years as a treatment counselor in a prison that was direct supervision (all cell doors open up to common area in the center of the block, direct contact with inmates rather than indirectly through sliding barred doors), I would use this method/concept/idea when working on the unit.
Maintaining one's center and projecting from one's center (including footwork, posture - manifestation of psychological attitude through physical attitude, ma-ai, angle of approach and engagement) become very important and helpful when working in a crowded and/or hostile environment. And without a doubt, it works when executed properly.
