    Go to a judo school for six months and train nothing but Ne waza, I garrantee a BJJ practioner of equal size, weight and training time will smoke you on the ground.

    Clearly its not based on people leaving BJJ. It is based on people becoming indifferent to it. They will stay if they are there. If they go to sign up for something, they will consider other styles. Some people will like judo over BJJ whereas right now that same person feels like judo is all throws and has no ground game.

    It being a fad is based on the fact that its (inflated) popularity will go down as people realize that it is not as unique as they think it is.

    So someone is learning an art that is providing them with good skills, and you think they'll leave because it's not "unique" and they could just go to one of the seven universities in Japan to do Kosen?

    WTF?

    Why do you say that? (Kodokan) Judo is missing the most important ground fighting techniques? Because you are saying "equal training time"... so I assume you mean that the BJJ practioner is actually going to learn something radically different than what one would learn in pure newaza in kodokan judo.

    What are you responding to? I just posted on this to Aesopian. Its like one of you guys characterize what I say and then everybody goes by that. And, then I am constantly correcting you all on it....

    Yes, I have trained both, and I say yes. Others of the same vein will agree.

    No one can follow your argument. That is why I keep summarizing what you've been saying.

    How can you summarize any further what I have already said in a short paragraph. You missed the part where I even put it in enumerated propositions for Hapko3.
