Bracket Turn

Definition: A bracket turn is a figure skating turn. It is done on one foot. It is similar to a three turn, but a bracket turn is counter-rotated. The tracing the ice skate blade makes on the ice after the turn is completed points outward and does not make a "3" pattern like the three turn.
Examples:
A bracket turn is done in footwork sequences in freeskating programs, but is also a required turn in certain moves in the field figure skating tests and in ice dances.
