Fact:

We don't see backfists and horse stances in boxing.

There's nothing in the rules to prohibit their use. And in an environment where only the very best reap huge financial rewards, it's logical to assume that fighters, trainers and coaches would look for every possible advantage. And yet... no horse stances, no backfists.
Yes, this is exactly what happens in a non-competitive fighting system, or a fighting sport with too-restrictive rules, practitioners get out of touch with reality. Horse Stance Backfists, Flying axe kicks, Ki Shin Fu Death Touch, Drunken Monkey Kung Fu and all the rest of it.

And Ki Shin Fu Death Touch is "in touch with reality" for a confrontation on the street?!?
