Dummies tend to get underused in my experience. The only things you can really do are generic bashing attacks. What if you could actually train with them to practice or work out your particular style or strategy? You wouldn't have to ask your poor friends and family members to stand there while you flail at them.
This would give practice dummies more purpose, especially considering there's a talisman set for one (which seems to be in abundance).
