If you turn to the right, then the typical hockey stop (with both feet) uses the inside edge of your left (front) skate and outside edge of your right (back) skate. At least those are the terms as I understand them.

When I hear someone say they can stop using all four edges, I assume they mean they can use one or both of those two edges, facing in either direction. I.e., they have enough balance and control to use the trailing edge of either skate (inside of the front or outside of the back).

I could be wrong, of course!
