That's obviously not only hyperbole and a generalisation, but they do produce good grapplers and fighters.
To be honest I didn't find the "juicing" culture that bad there to give them they're due as you could easily make that assumption based off the way they act. I've been to much worse gyms in the midlands.
Instructor's turning a blind eye or even encouraging being a dick would be a bigger concern.
It's definitely a gym that is much more geared towards cage fighting than martial arts and I'm talking much more about basic notions of respect and less about meditating up a tree when I say that.
