    BJJ is a fad because it doesn't account for or allow for wedgies or the dreaded purple nurple.

    Royce would have tapped to my purple nurple!!!

    BJJ is a fad because it doesn't allow the tittie twister, the wee wee drag, or the infamous tickling feather to the armpit :viking:

    The street argument is retarded. BJJ is so much overkill for the street that its ridiculous. Unless you're the idiot that picks a fight with the high school wrestling team, barring knife or gun play, the opponent shouldn't make it past double leg + ground and pound - Osiris

    BJJ is for fags, plain and simple.

    That's why our resident lesbian couple does Muay Thai instead.

    Without even going into the meat of "what is allowed and what is not".

    Even if we take your statement to be 100% correct, no style utilizes 100% of the techniques others do, if they did they would be the same style. No style is 100% comprehensive.

    I'm not even going to get into the spiritual issue, wait wait, so by that logic does that mean that training in a european martial art, learning to use the weapons of the day was not effective in a streetfight in 1500's because there was no spirituality in learning to kill someone with a rapier or backsword?

    What the **** does spirituality have to do with learning a technique?

    Are we supposed to prey that our strikes hit, or prostrate ourselves before some mythical bieng prior to executing a takedown?

    I didn't realize that prayer added to your effectiveness in a fight.

    Does it do anything for blocking?

    Can I prey that punches wont hit me?

    that would be much easier than actually defending physically.

    I voted no, because MA's that had their prime before and fallen low like karate and kung fu which used to be very well taught and popular and competitions were commonly full contact or close to it, their training invariably comes from a combo of both self kihon and kata plus fighting while BJJ needs a partner to work and has a very big focus on competition for ranking and other things (and is still very effective of t3h str34t) so unless someone finds a way to make BJJ training solitary kata-bullshido then it won't just go away.

    Maybe is US Suburbia and White-trashtown other MA's will be more popular but for those like us who take MA a bit more seriously and for those who compete BJJ will remain a force to be reconed with.

    I posted yes because, despite BJJ's effectiveness and training methodology, its popularity IS a fad. It is the current trend, the "hip" art. Once a movie star or MMA champion comes along with a dynamic personality and noteworthy art, people will hype about that one.

    The marketing of the Gracies has been THAT good, that it has stretched the life of the hype. Eventually the hype will die and you will be left with a damn good art, but the arrogant trappings of doing the "hip" thing (and hopefully the people that go with it) will fall by the wayside.

    UFC and Pride have only proven you need ground skills in competition. I dont know about other people but every fight Ive been in never went to the ground.

    Behold, two WC Masters failing at not going to the ground:

    If those two couldn't stay off the floor, I seriously doubt *you* would stay off the floor against someone who was determined to put you there.
