Aikidoka do not compete and I think that is a large part of the "bragging rights" issue that some other arts might have.

The next factor is ego, which is discussed here on Web every now and then. This is a personal issue. Either the person has a "chip" on their shoulder or they don't... its that simple.

Speaking for myself, I am THE MOST humble person that I have ever met or known so, I have no issues with humility. Just ask me anytime!

Domo!
