A fencing maneuver for evading a parry in which the attacker feints in one line then brings the blade up and over the opponent's weapon. This can be done with either a movement of the fingers alone or a movement of the elbow.

Distinct from a disengage, in which one goes under the opponent's blade. Although more difficult than a disengage because of the greater distance that must be covered, the coupe is often performed when the opponent might expect a disengage or when the opponent tends toward fairly low and flat parries.
