Buy a samurai sword and keep it with you at all times. As pauly j suggested, Kikindabalz jun doo as well as striketothroat jitsu both work. If worse comes to worse, bite the dude, then dudes will think you are tough as shit.

Just get your cock out if someone confronts you. No one can attack a guy when they can smell his dick. And if they touch it then they're gay and you'll easily be able to kick their ass.

Aikido is bad. Almost all styles of kung fu are bad (with the one exception being next to useless for your purposes). JKD is almost always bad.

Kyokushin will teach you to kick people's asses. Yes, even if they're bigger than you. Yes, even if you have bad knees. Yes, even if it's on t3h str33t. Judo will teach you to throw people on their heads. Yes, even if they're bigger than you. Yes, even if you have bad knees. Yes, even if it's on t3h str33t.

As for people saying that small guys can't punch hard, here's a list of the world record holders for punching power by weight.

Heavyweight (200+lbs) - 1081 PSI
Light Heavyweight - 1023 PSI
Middleweight - 987 PSI
Welterweight - 951 PSI
Lightweight - 923 PSI
Featherweight - 909 PSI
Bantamweight - 843 PSI
Flyweight - 829 PSI
Strawweight (105lbs) - 813 PSI

Note that the strawweight was able to punch with ~75% of the power of the guy that weighed at least 2 times as much as him. It's all about technique.

"I don't want them to like me, because when I'm in the ring, punches fly to the face. It is not a tenderness time. I am not falling in love. And he knows that when the fight starts I am kicking faces."

If you are looking at straight self-defense I would go with Krav Maga. I have heard nothing but great things about it and apparently it's very effective. People will probably bitch and complain and say, "anyone can kick a guy in the balls and gouge eyes!!! hahah." **** them. If anyone can do that then Krav Maga will teach you how to do it more effective than the average person. Some of the guys I train with also train in KM and swear that it's the best self-defense in the street. I want to train in it when I get some extra cash. Right now I'm in love with MT and BJJ.

i'd take BJJ for the fact that most fights end up on the ground

Boxing or kickboxing... yea after a few years you should be able to defend yourself... that or go buy a gun.

mostly excellent advice. pressure point, joint manipulation (especially small), Chin Na can give you a quick advantage. Dodging and circle stepping are good as well.
