ZenBassist: Practical for what? Tournement or combat? In true self defense scenarios, there is no point system, and no time outs, nor is there such a thing as an illegal technique. I have studied many styles, and each has its strong points. Jiujitsu is great when it is one on one, but get jumped by a group of thugs and you are in trouble. Wing Chun is devastating on the street, but in the ring, you would be getting disqualified if you used half of your techniques. The answer I believe is simple. The best martial art is the one that you as an individual can effectively defend yourself with. If it works for you, then it doesn't suck.
LabRatEscapee: I've studied martial arts for a long time, it helped me get into shape, made me more confident, and also provided me with a stronger will to achieve. I believe that all martial arts are one, and give the same meaning: self survival.
PrimeTyme1: To find good martial arts you need to first look at your abilities. Your strength, weakness and your mind... Look at the method of how most people... People tend to move run towards you’re so that forward movement is your first alert point... Someone who is in striking range of you is a dangerous person... Therefore, you need to position yourself in a defence and attacking a nature pose ready for defence and attack at the same time. I have studied and practice the arts for many years... and I am disciplined in 5 different styles.... I have used my skills to defend myself and a friend... from being attacked... Personally I recommend the following arts, Brazilian jiu jitsu, Aikido, Wing Chun, Pencak Silat, Kali or Eskrima. The other fighting art to consider is Krav Maga this art is a combination of many fighting martial arts... and was updated recently in 2013.
Fog Swept Glade: Kenpo learning followed by judo. An alternative would be tae kwon or Kung fu followed by akiddo. Close and far away. The real world has alot of “oppertunists”, sure, but, that kind of guy is making a scholarly statement, and was tampered with or didn‘t start a “fair fight” close and far away over mat fighting.

7. Brazilian/Gracie Jiu Jitsu
8. Muay Thai kickboxing

straywlf: 43 years of training in the martial arts. I have learned that all styles help in some way but you have to take what works for you from each of them. We all have different body styles. Some styles of fighting won't work for us. Find what you want to gain from training and develop that. Learn it all. I have a basic style I go back to to train, but... it isn't my style. It is the one developed by the original father of the style. I love to use my feet and legs but without training my hands and the rest of my body and mind I'm stifled.
Jus Jus: I and my brother have practiced a blended form of Aikido and Ju Jitsu since childhood. The dojo has always emphasized that these forms of self defence are exactly that - for self defence and not for anything else.
The boastful and provocative term 'Fighting' is never used in the dojo or by any sensei.
