best for self defense? i would personally say a combination of eskrima/arnis/kali (to learn how to deal with weaponry like knives) in combination with boxing and some basic grapping would do you well...

best self defense though is to try and avoid such situations...

since we're talking about self defense however, i think you should take a look at this vid (ppl have probably seen this before, but i dont care) :

YouTube - Bas Rutten Street Self Defense

I'd go with a JKD, BJJ and Kickboxing/Muay Thai mix. Kickboxing is very good for building power, speed and devastating striking power, provided you adapt the high hand stance and angles a little to account for the lack of gloves and the possibility of groin attacks. Muay Thai will get you the devastating knees and elbows. BJJ is for up close and takedown situations, although in general you wanna stay off the ground in streetfights. And JKD combines a lot of the others with some very effective locks, punches and traps, extremely effective in a streetfight. I've trained for a while in all of the above and have had to test them on the street more than once.
If you really want to push the barrier, train in Kali for knives.. nothing is more dangerous up close than a knife and someone who knows how to use it. Of course, it might be worse if you end up stabbing somebody rather than take a beating but in a life-or-death situation the knife skills are handy.

You have to pay for a year long, or lifetime membership to get pictures in your signature; or be a mod.

Another art that I'd love to learn (but it may be hard to find depending on where you live) is Systema. It's a Russian martial art (similar to Krav Maga, but according to the Russians, it is much, much older and has roots hundreds of years ago). It can be devestating, but like I said, it can be hard to find a place that teaches it.

The Systema is awesome. It is one of the most effective scientific martial arts ever made.. deadly. Krav Maga is child's play in comparison; I was never very impressed by Krav Maga.. It seems they mostly stress on unrealistic disarms performed on unmoving, unreacting opponents that just stand and let it happen. There is never any sparring, no real test for it. Real situations are much more dynamic than the scenarios in those training exercises depict.

Ya I remember when I came here you, moldy, and ironman posted all the time, there is a lot more people now.

As for self defense if you are really worried about knives and guns I wouldn't even bother with martial arts. If you are over 18 and have a clean record get a CCW and a gun, if you are under 18 just carry a knife, most states let you carry one if the blade is under a certain length or if you can see it or something like that.

Now if I guy attacks you and it does not warrant a gun or knife the I would just train in boxing/kickboxing/Muay Thai (one of the three), and if you want Judo. I would pick Judo because in a street fight if it does go to the ground you are not going to be fighting against one of the Gracies, and you will not likely be on the ground for long so you would only need basic Jiu-Jitsu, which you will learn in Judo. There is no reason to go too far in depth with Jiu-Jitsu if your just using it for self defense. Also Judo has great throws that can do some real damage on concrete, and if you throw a guy real nice and his head lands right on the concrete I could see him giving up pretty fast.
