—knights swarm ninety degrees

Meaning

In chess, the knight piece moves in an “L” shape: two spaces in one direction, then turns ninety degrees and moves one space to either side. One can think of knights as warriors—both on and off the chessboard. The message here is that you have to keep aware of an unexpected assailant coming around the corner when you least expect it.
