"I forget, what's my part in Twisted Stones?"
"The counting!"
-Wendy Watson and the Middleman

Twisted Stones is a one- or two-man martial arts technique taught by Sensei Ping, designed to overcome three opponents from different directions. It involves a palm strike to one attacker, then jumping and kicking off one's shoes to hit the other attackers in the face.

This attack is used by only one person, but sometimes features a partner, who counts to three. The counting is apparently to distract the victims.

The Middleman and Wendy used this technique to incapacitate three attackers onboard billionaire oilman Arthur Mendleson's private yacht. ("The Cursed Tuba Contingency")
