IMHO, because by definition, martial arts are an adversarial competitive (win/lose) combat art, there will always be those with that same attitude. Unfortunately, it limits their growth to their own ignorance, making them easier to defeat.
As Aikido is non competative, there is no win/lose, could we say that it is not a "Martial" Art
