if you find a movement useless then your either very limted in terms of imagination or purpose. Even in my forms i find uses for each this is to teadch me proper form in movement how to practice alone. I mean a rising guard for example can be used to lead into an upward oxblow from ther to a spear hand *idealy to the thorat* and to really mix it up a hip shot *step up and bump them back.
now it funny how that works move reguard as useful that really a movment into a closed stance something begainer see as usless and clumsy. Each move has a reason some times it is as they say in kung fu simply flower, but even a flower can have thorns! It can misdirect an oppent from the second intended attack.
To call any movement usless is to prove yourself a closed minded person.
