Bracket turn

Bracket turn diagram

A bracket turn is a kind of one-foot turn in figure skating. The transition between edges during the turn is the same as for a three turn - for example, forward inside edge to back outside edge - but unlike a three turn, in which the cusp of the turn points into the curve of the arc on which it is skated, a bracket turn is counterrotated so that the cusp points outward. The tracing of the turn on the ice resembles a curly bracket "}".

Brackets are considered advanced turns in figure skating, and commonly appear only in step sequences instead of as a simple means of changing direction.
