This is the International Krav Maga Federation, which is different than our World Wide & Alliance Affiliations. This video is shot in Israel, where a brick attack might be more common. In watching the video I would think the diving in method from frontal stick attack would be safer. If you cracked someone with a stout 360 defense it seems to me that the momentum of the brick could fly out of attackers hand in your direction. But, again I have not practiced the brick defense, so I certainly speculate from afar. Enjoy.
