    A person's fighting methods are a direct result of who they train with, IOW how the techniques are adapted and used and the level of skill of their opponents.

    It has been well established that ALL fighting is just a fad anyway so let's just move on to more important things like fashioning animals out of balloons filled with chi.

    Oh man.

    Look here's my 2 cents worth.

    I do not think BJJ is a fad. Its more than that. It has rocked the martial arts world and transformed the way we will view fighting. Its not the number one choice for MMA fighters for no reason. I can't think of any other martial art which has track record as solid as BJJ.

    Sure, groundfighting has its disadvantages but it has been tested time after time and passed. After I'm done with Kyokushin, BJJ is my next choice. Or at least Judo.

    In what ways?

    A track record in fighting, or a track record in competitive combat?

    Late to the thread. Sue me. I voted yes, it is a fad, not to detract from its effectiveness, but more as the end-all-be-all MA. In coming years it will likely become diluted as it gets away from its roots, especially if it does not adapt and address its issues (IMHO it only addresses 1/3 of a game).

    Point grappling will happen (more than it does now), BJJ mcdojos will open, and your kid's kids will be able to have a My Little BJJ Birthday Party, complete with an inflatable set of Rorion's nuts to hug and patches for all.

    As Aesopian pointed out earlier, the title of the thread is:

    "Do you think BJJ is *just* a fad?".

    It's a trick question and the main reason I didn't vote either way.

    You might also notice in my first post I asked:

    Do you think BJJ is just a passing trend?


    just
    adv.
    Merely; only: just a scratch.

    passing
    adj.
    Of brief duration; transitory: a passing fancy.

    trend
    n.
    Current style; vogue: the latest trend in fashion.

    Yeah. He got that a lot faster than I did and thus did not have to admit error the way I did....

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