For fighting MT is way better. Not saying its a better martial art, but as for defending yourself hands down only an idiot would say kung fu is as effective as MT.
Of course it depends on the person, but assuming two equally capable persons learning each art the person in MT has massive advantages against the Kung Fu student in a real fight.
