need help i do not know what art i should pick please help

hey everyone need some help i am 24 years old and looking to take martial art classes i used to take miyama ryu jujitsu and i liked it alot because of the throws and submissions and mostly because it was ground work and standing the schools i want to go to now teach brazilian jujitsu or muay thai MMA style i really do not know which one i should do i like good conditioning and training also i want the art to be real hardcore and want it to be very realistic also will be good for self defense i love jujitsu but i read that bjj is all on the ground and there arent any judo throws i want to have a very effective art which one do you think would be more for me please help thank you

if you already got some ground skills look into a stand up art. Muat Thai is a great one..

I'd take bjj and Muay thai they seem to work good together.
