It's one of the ironies of traditional martial arts, spending lots of time learning stances, drilling them in forms- and in free sparring, not really using them. Worse, if you want to learn to fight, against a (kick)boxer, wrestler, MMA guy, you have to unlearn standing there like a dummy.

That said, I've trained with a lot of non-traditional fighters, and they tend to be weak with kicking and balance because they don't have the base of having good stances (even if it's not a deep horse stance!)
