Thread: Is BJJ just a fad?

Hell even ronin didn't have a clear idea of what bjj was when he first came here, and he actually cares about fighting for fighting's sake. In contrast to your example of rap, everyone in music (and out) knew what rap was, even if they didn't like it and thought it was just a fad (which due to its staying power it clearly wasn't).

If we want to argue that fads follow 60+ year cycles, I quit.

Proven for that game (in this case Hitman fact fans). Not for everthing. You need to experiment with something to find out whether it fits your needs first. Most of us are getting our interest in BJJ from a huge third party interest (like this thread) - and in that respect it's a fad.

With the level of BJJ fanboism i'd be hard pressed not to be believe its a fad.
The majority of practioners seem to suffer from a benign superiority complex.
BJJ is not the answer to everthing look at all the top ten three lists.

i dont think its only effectiveness that makes BJJers think its superior....
BJJers tell me that its also alot of fun and they make good friends at class and that its a great workout too.

I voted, yes it's a fad but fads can have merit and be legitimate and continue long after the "fad" part is over.
Sliced bread was fad. Being a lesbian in college is a fad.

Ten years experience can be ten true years or one year repeated ten times.
