    It's a fad but it's still a very formidible martial art. Also, kids are fatter than ever and bjj really appeals to fat kids' desire to lay down on the ground.

    BJJ isn't a fad. As others have said, the revolutionary (in the true sense, as a "turn around" that may either move us forward or bring us back to our roots) aspect of BJJ wasn't the moves themselves. It was the way it was developed, and how people learned it. Whether you agree with many of the Gracies' and other BJJ exponent's theories and conclusions, it's hard for an art like this to get stale. It's constantly being tested, altered, and moved forward by people who know that the heart of BJJ is it's philosophical predisposition to empiricism and practicality.

    Other arts are adopting this attitude now as well. And that--THAT--is the legacy BJJ leaves, even if its dominance wanes.

    STFU!!! What the hell are you saying, it makes no sense. I don't know where you have seen BJJ being taught, but most of the BJJ practitioners I have seen are in great shape.

    I voted NO, because BJJ is a very effective art. Also it is a big part of MMA, just about every MMA fighter you see nowadays, has some kind of background in BJJ, or some other form of grappling. It is good, and is here to stay, there is no way it is just a fad. I know alot of people who talk bad about it, until they try it, and fall in love with it.

    BJJ is absolutely a fad. Within it contains many other fads. How many video clips can you find where someone is doing Rubber Guard? Does that mean it's not effective? No way. It's absolutely effective. There's a reason for a fad becoming a fad. That's why monkey style kung fu is not a fad.
