Decline in the Traditional: Finding a Judo School

All of them have told me they can find a number of BJJ, MMA, or striking arts all day long, but no judo or ju jitsu.

I was wondering if any of you have had similar troubles finding places to train after relocating. I do not want to graduate and move away if I can't find a new dojo. Has anyone else noticed a decline in older more traditional arts?
