I have lately been coming across much boasting by the Brazilian Jujitsu practioners about their grappling techniques and claims that no martial art would stand a chance once you are on the ground...

of any art want self-defence. Somewhere along the way, they forget this little fact and become content with whatever they are being taught. They trust the system.
The reality is, they would be far better served for self-defence by doing boxing and wrestling for one year. And even if they quit after one year, what they learned would serve them for the next ten.
Tell me it ain't so, ...
