    Personally i'd say boxing. It has knock out strikes, will teach you to deal with the most common attacks that you'll meet on the street, and leaves you with much better mobility than arts which emphasise kicking.

    Krav Maga also has a good reputation, though i'd stay away from BJJ and other ground based arts on the street.

    I here you. Went through a short period of time of being angry at the world and went walking through some rough parts of town, just putting a glare on. A mixed group of teens took me up on it one day. Gotta be careful what I wish for sometimes.

    For me it would be "Jun Fan Jeet Kune Do" with a heavy "Kali" influence. Jeet Kune Do is a street fighting system that is designed to adapt to just about any situation, Filipino Kali has the best knife fighting style I have ever seen, and even if you are unarmed, it (Silat, for empty handed) works just as good.
    Filipino knife fighting is the reason for the marines using 45s, and why they started wearing leather collars. (Leather necks)

    But in old age he shall have no peace

    Klick-Pow is the best martial art for multiple attackers, in the non-mouse flavors.

    Since most people cannot punch that hard, a fist load to the mellon could be second best.

    If all they can carry is a knife, then it should be razor sharp, and hammer gripped. Of course, some street defense classes would be beneficial.

    Sprinting. Hit the biggest one and get the hell out of there as fast as humanly possible. Standing there in a Jan Claude Van Dam pose would also probably make them laugh long enough for you to run away.

    Avoiding situations that might mean you are surrounded by multiple attackers in the first instance is also an important part of self defence.

    Running isn't a Martial Art.

    It's essentially a cop out to say 'avoid danger'. The whole point of learning a martial art is to be able to win a fight once you're in it, whatever the reason it started.

    Fortress Germania's suggestion isn't the worst but, assuming fleeing is not an option, (eg. you're surrounded) you'd need some kind of striking defence. If you can take out a couple of your assailants quickly you might then be in a position to run for it!

    I actually used to teach Krav part-time a few years ago, and I although can't vouch for Krav world-wide, our school's approach to Krav is very intense and I highly, highly, recommend it for someone who is looking for martial arts that are effective in real life situations.

    The physical fitness aspects of it are very intense - a big part of it is constantly drilling the most effective, most basic techniques (jab cross hook uppercut, groin kicks, knees, etc). Another big part at the most advanced levels is situational awareness and learning to use your environment to your advantage.

    There are also a lot of drills that get you used to reacting to threats quickly - for example, in one drill, the lights are turned off, and one group of students will be standing in a neutral position with eyes closed, and then the other group will attack them either by shoving them with a target, grabbing them in some sort of chokehold, etc, and the goal of the drill is to see how quickly and effectively the first group can respond.

    There is also a lot of training for how to deal with close range gun threats, knives, etc. The philosophy behind a lot of the self-defense techniques is that they try to draw as much as possible from the natural reaction that your body would have to the attack in the first place, for example - if someone chokes you from the front and is pushing you forward or up against the wall, your natural instinctive reaction is to put both of your arms vertically in the air, so, the defense Krav teaches is actually based on what you do after your hands both go into the air - this makes it easier to learn defenses more quickly than to try and override your natural instincts with different responses.

    Our students are in general very legit, tough guys - there are a lot of police officers, ex-marines, etc, but at the same time, there are a lot of more average people that just go to have basic self-defense awareness or to get in shape.

    The training system (again, at least at our school) is modeled so that after just a couple of months of training, a student will be fairly well equipped with the fundamental tools and fighting knowledge necessary to handle a bad situation at a bar, a nighttime attack on the street, etc.

    As someone who has spent a large portion of his life training and studying martial arts, Krav seems on the other hand a little shallow, not that it doesn't have depth at higher levels, but, it's not something I would really be able to say, "this is all I'm going to do, just train Krav and nothing else for many years", about.

    That being said, it's excellent for people who

    • Want to get in great shape
    • Want to learn how to defend themselves effectively and quickly
    • Want a supplement to their existing martial arts training where they can work on basics and get a good all-around workout

    The best is a handgun. It stops any Win shun, Karate, Boxing and so on idiot in a second. And it is much easier to learn without all the bullshit.

    It also has going for it that it is a germanic way of fighting.

    Beside that I always have my hunting knife in my cowboyboots.
