**Abstract: **It is shown that the world-line can be eliminated in the matrix quantum mechanics conjectured by Banks, Fischler, Shenker and Susskind to describe the light-cone physics of M theory. The resulting matrix model has a form that suggests origins in the reduction to a point of a Yang-Mills theory. The reduction of the Nishino-Sezgin $10+2$ dimensional supersymmetric Yang-Mills theory to a point gives a matrix model with the appropriate features: Lorentz invariance in $9+1$ dimensions, supersymmetry, and the correct number of physical degrees of freedom.
