    It is my hope it will "mature" and "evolve". That all depends on how it is accepted and passed along.

    Voted no! :)

    shortly, not only are people training BJJ because they love it or et.c. but to get in shape, the spiritual road ( personal enlightment scientifically), stress relief, it can be very competitive, I know some people who do Jiu Jitsu but dont even care much about competition they just simply love it.

    I personally love the competition side of it. But I also love it as a Art, it's just amazing :D and that goes for Martial Arts in general in my opinion

    Its not a fad. But I'm afraid that it will become the new Karate or TKD... Were it will take you a month to find a decent school.

    So waterdown and worthless that its only point will be to stroke the ego's of kids and people who are delusional about self defense.

    Hopefully it will go down the Judo route and self regulate.

    Aye, I think it is going down the Judo route. Except for the GJJ online stint, BJJ mcdojos are fair and far between compared to other styles even after so many years (UFC was started in 1993- 18 years ago) due to the alive training method and the relatively easy-to-trace linegage credientials of a particular instructor.

    How will it go down the Judo route? Judo is probably the toughest art out there to train in and humbles a lot of people that thinks its easy.

    Thread is ~6 years old. It's a thing here not to necro threads unless you have new and/or relevant information. Now with that out of the way, read it in context. It's the self-regulation of Judo that they were predicting BJJ will imitate. They already share the same training methodologies.

    Don't give up on it, though. It'll be back in style eventually. Just like bell bottom pants.
