Finding the Point is the fifth of the First Masters of Battle plays in the fencing manual Fior di Battaglia, from 1409. The play trains for the thrust after coming to the bind incrosa.

Both zugadore and scolaro begin in Posta di Donna Distra and come to the bind in Posta Longa or Posta Breve, with context on distance.
Then, depending on the strength given by the zugadore in the bind, the scolaro thrusts in punta, in one of three ways: if heavy resistance is encountered, the punta is delivered through Posta di Finestra Sinestra; if medium strength is applied, then the master thrusts through Posta di Bicorno; and if weak pressure is given in the bind, the master thrusts directly from Posta Breve.
