Counting coup was a traditional Native American display of bravery. It consisted of touching an enemy warrior and retreating out of reach before the enemy had an opportunity to retaliate. The practice involved great risk and incurred great honor.

When Lutan kidnapped Natasha Yar from the USS Enterprise-D, Data compared his brazen act to counting coup. (TNG: "Code of Honor")
