yah your right to an extent. Your absolutely right people that have it tend to abuse the hell out of it. Most of them do it wrong any way. Its not a move your suppose to bust out with every fight its something your supposed to do to change the pace. Obviously if your beating the crap out of the guy it would be pointless to use.
Its more of a move to throw some one off so you can set up your own rhythm and open him up for other shots. When I have used it I have used it I have done it diffent.
Say im working some one over by out fighting him because I have a good reach advantage. Im using alot of jabs and long range kicks to wear him down. Now the guys pretty gassed and I want to switch it up to an infight and finish him off. I could just rush in and then beat the crap out of him but then he could just clinch me and pull some shit.
If I utilize my skip punch though I can use that to close the distance and then at the same time stun him and suprise him and go off with a melee of punches and fluries.
