In the Monster Manual the Knight has a reaction ability called Parry:

Parry. The knight adds 2 to its AC against one melee attack that would hit it. To do so, the knight must see the attacker and be wielding a melee weapon.

I'm not clear on how often this can be used - it says "against one melee attack that would hit it" is this once per turn or just against any melee attacks?


The knight's parry ability uses its reaction therefore it follows the usual reaction rules found on page 190 of the PHB:

[...] When you take a reaction, you can't take another one until the start of your next turn.
