A fencing maneuver that involves the full extension of the weapon, followed by no movement. Essentially, a Point-in-Line is a defensive maneuver which if executed prior to the start of your opponent's action claims the attack. A Point-in-Line is always first in any question of right of way, and if your opponent wishes to attack, he/she must either wait for the Point to be removed, or remove it - typically through Battement.

The idea behind Point-in-Line's offensive supremacy, is that no one would charge onto an extended blade without doing something about it first - to do so would be suicide.
