Have you ever lost to someone who had a "BS martial art"?
Like a friend/ random dude talking **** who practices Wing Chun, TKD or some art you personally dismiss as rubbish, then you took him on and actually lost?
I had a friend with no MA experience who was just freaking huge and strong, and he held me down on the ground (pre-BJJ). Aside from that, no, and if you ever did lose to a TKDer or a Chunner then I suggest you commit seppuku to regain your honor. Tis the way of the Bu(llshi)do.
Knowing is not enough, you must apply...
...Willing is not enough you must do
And you just got back too.......
That means you are an unlucky sommebitch. That's it. The weight is on "your" shoulders if you get beat by an "inferior" style. I'd be more upset I got my ass handed to me.

Sumus extra manum tuam.
When I was a little kid(5 or 6) I fought other kids and won using Tae Kwon Do.
I accidently used Aikido when I was but a wee little man to defeat bullies. I knew nothing of the art, I had "invented" a new style of "kuhroddy". I called it 'throw-fighting'.
Thats more like wrestling than anything else.
If you do train in an allegedly 'inferior' martial art, and you beat up on someone who's giving you mouth about it, I suppose you'd get extra satisfaction and they'd get to feel extra dum.
I once lost to this guy:
I don't know what style he did but the decision was reversed due to doping charges.
His style isn't BS. It's Greco-Roman. And car-throwing, all pressure-tested.
