It's an expression from fencing - if your oppontent hits you with his/her foil, that is "touché" (touched). In a lively discussion, it is said to admit that the other person's point was very accurate, ie. it damaged your argument.

actually that's a french word a (verb) and means " to Touch", but I learn from movies or series that is used to give credit to a rival, like to admit your defeat and admit that the other person won. to admit that an opponent in an argument has made a good point
