Aikidoka do not compete and I think that is a large part of the "bragging rights" issue that some other arts might have.
Most aikido practitioners do not enter tournaments, but they "compete" in other ways to be sure.
As in all things, the participants in any art display a wide range of human behavior. Each individual speaks for themself. (and on any given day, their behaviors and your perception of them will change...)
All of these comparisons are very heavy baggage to carry around.
Practice for the sake of the practice.
