True. I've spent the last couple of years in a martial arts forum where everyone was actually a practitioner and there was a big knowledge exchange between the sub-forums of the different styles. So I somehow had to get used to that here people are rather spectators than practitioners and mainly interested in MMA only.

Yes, Gracie propaganda was also somewhat overselfconfident, but at least they proved and still prove their style in open competitions in contrast to the Wing Chunners, where in particular the EWTO made some big claims, but never gave proof.
