Yes, yet one of the most underrated ways of using footwork, by ignorant martial artists, is Shaolin footwork. Its ability to have solid (immovable) structure, and yet and incredible amount of speed available is unparalleled. The stances aren't used as stationary (ignorant misconception), but rather as flowing. The moment somebody moves close to attack, or tries to take advantage of the stance's weakness you flow into another one to either direct-counter attack or evasion. They proved firm rooting, and great stability and power for punches and kicks. By simply looking at them, this cannot be understood, you would have to see someone with vast Shaolin experience to show you.
