Sometimes to the point of being useless for actually building up fighting skills.

    Therefore training with a real, alive person is better than not (moreso if that person is actually acting like a human by resisting like humans do).

    The end.
    To beat a dead horse:

    A football team will never improve if they simply draw up plays.
    A swimmer will never improve if he never swims.
    Soldiers will never improve if they do not do drills.
    A driver's ed student will never improve if he only plays racing games.

    ... The list goes on and on...

    It comes down to this: we, as human beings, learn by experience far better than any other method. "Don't touch, it's hot" is something your parents may've said to you when you were young, but it's not until you actually got burnt you realized what "it's hot" means.

    So you can either theorize or actually go out and do it.

    (And I apologize for posting, essentially, the same thing that's been posted here umpteen hundred times already)

    And martial artists of the non-MMA variety do in fact spar.

    Only the great majority of them spar under crap rules that end up hampering the growth of any combat applicable skills.

    Go away.

    Board breaking is useful for demos and wowing people who don't know any better. I think that's about it. There was some mumbo jumbo about being able to break a board is equivalent to a bone, but come on, for aliveness purposes its much more effective in training to break the bones of a live target.

    If your confused on aliveness, this is a good place to start. If your still confused - look up the video. If your still confused, get your head out of your rear end.
