As for being more aware of my surroundings, Amen. You are preaching to the choir at this point.

I understand the concept of moving off the line of attack, but I was in a bad position. My back was two feet from the counter and the aisle was only 2-3 feet wide. I didn't have any room to sidestep or spin. So I went forward the only direction I could see where I was going.

I also never turned my back on him. I just made the mistake of letting him get so close I couldn't see his hands.
oh ok
I didn't really understand the situation entirely, but it sounds like it turned out fine.

I was just giving you a little general advice, not so much for that specific situation.
