Style: brazilian jiu jitsu
hm... never really came across that type of attitude. Personally I respect any judo/wrestling training. Now JJJ from watching the club at my school I am not that impressed with but I am sure that in more hardcore places they train well.

Seriously, though, that mentality you encountered is nothing new...you can easily find kungfu guys who will tell you the same thing about kungfu, and so on and so forth.

Oh wait. BJJ does work, I don't have to publicy affirm my insecurities on a public message board.
There are numerous examples. Cool, won't have to change my nick name then.
