Ive Seen It A Million Times. A character is getting hit by a heavy blow, but his defenses are perfect. So how do you show it? You have the character retain his defensive pose, and skid backwards several feet. This is visual shorthand for "He took the massive blow for no/chip damage". If the character is knocked off his feet, or knocked into a wall, the implication is that he did take damage.
