    No, When is knowing how to fight ever been a fad. Parachute Pants were a fad. The Martial Arts aren't a fad.

    As long as people are around to train BJJ and the other Martial Arts will be fine.

    Train Hard, Stay Safe,
    Good Luck

    Anyone claiming its a fad is a retard, and anyone claiming it will become a McDojo and become bullshido is retarded.

    Has this happened to kickboxing, wrestling, judo or boxing? No. Sure there may be a few questionable schools, but everyone will tell you when your looking for a school that you dont have to worry about it, to go to one of them.

    I bet everyone who voted it a fad does some sort of crappy TMA (not Kyokushin or Judo or whatever a good TMA would be).

    Also, in order for it to be a real fad, lots of people have to care, and for the most part, no one gives a **** about martial arts.

    I always love these people who think that learning to fight effectively is the equivalent of live strong bracelets, and we're all someday gonna realize what terrible fashionistas we are and go back to dancing around in uncomfortable clothes and shoes.

    No, he doesn't.

    BJJ, as it being the Über, is most definitely a fad. It may, however, last a bit longer than most, but BJJ for the most part is too specialized to last by itself, given it's rather limited sport applications. As the martial arts community comes around as a whole and recognizes the need to spent at least some time on ground game, BJJ will simply fall behind the scenes for the most part, the exception being in MMA sports training.

    I voted yes.

    BJJ has alot of good stuff. Due to the right marketing, it has caught the public's attention. But, as with all things marketing, it will be eclipsed by something else when a different marketing campaign comes along and gets everyone's attention.

    Popularity will drop off - and that's fine, because it'll likely drop off with the same folks who would've done kung fu after seeing a Bruce Lee movie, TSD after seeing a Chuck Norris move, boxing after seeing Rocky etc etc etc
