The thought of a clone presented an important idea, what if he could use clones to further augment his style. While it is true he was already going to be using a lot of small chakra expenses and those add up quickly, sometimes a decoy or replacement attack copy, could end a fight. With his clan's gift for draining the enemies jutsu the only thing hed need to worry about is if they decide to wait him out... using sensory and puppet threads takes chakra and so if they were to delay a fight then the battle of attrition is against him. He knew he would never be able to learn a way to use puppetry without a cost, using chakra would nearly always cost chakra, and even holding his threads repressed... while less costly... still was taxing on his chakra supply.
The best bet would be to learn how to mitigate the cost as best as possible. Though, his clan jutsu was powerful, unique, and most would not know how to deal with it... He felt maybe he could improve his control for both given that he was almost always making his bees but most of his kamizuru jutsu was already rather cheep for what it gave and most of it didnt need to be maintained.
Another option was to fight using ones feet, visualizing this he through of the idea of drawing a hand across the front of him, crossing his arm over to the opposite side to direct a puppet, while bringing a foot up in order to block an attack from in front of him. The defense would be a little awkward but it would also be using his entire body for it too. He knew it would be a foolish technique without some better shoes but it could stop someone elses kick or even could become a third hand to catch a fist if need be,
Extending into this visualization, it was entirely possible too to draw his foot forth into a block against the frontal attack before then drawing his foot up to then bring it bearing down, heal first, on the target. This was a simple maneuver but in his mind he could see it as exceptionally effective as it free'd his hands up to continue conducting puppetry. Combining this would his own puppet vision jutsu would allow him to keep up with two fight at once.
