It's an opportunity to stab your opponent, and it works just fine, you just have to be quick.
it gives good damage when you succeed, though sometimes, if you're just a tad too slow, the game gives an "Stab Failed" message, but still gives you the opportunity to deal a lot of normal damage like a dodge or shield break.
It's hard to hit it in time, but some of the later guards have some signature moves where you often gets the "Stab" circle, when you see him prepare for the move just be ready.
The God Kings guard have one where he moves couple of steps back and the runs forwards and charge with his chest.
The paladin flame guard have a similar move.
Even the King has have it, but he is FAST!
