Beau Doboszenski of Defensive Mindset Training is weighing in on a consistant feature in defensive literature, the concept of "getting off the X."
In military parlance, an ambush is set by creating two interlocking fields of fire from a unit. Those fields of fire interlock to make an ‘X.’ Therefore, to get out of an ambush, it is crucial to get out of that area of interlocking fire or “off the X.”
This concept has been more broadly applied to self-defense to mean getting off of the line of attack. In a one-on-one situation there isn’t an interlocking field of fire, but there is a point or line of attack. By picturing actual visual lines you gain an interesting perspective on how to deal with an incoming attack while moving and shooting.
