I guess, like said earlier on, Judo is alright when the fight goes to the ground and up-close-and-personal

What about MMA?

I have to correct you Aikido does not translate to "Joint Twisting". The translation is as follows Ai means Harmony .. Ki means Spirit ...and Do means The Way or the Path depends on how you translate it. So Aikido liteally means The Way of Harmonising your Spirit. I have practised Aikido since 1969 I now hold a 4th Dan Black Belt and I also teach it.
Example of other martial art translations
Kendo.... The Way of the Sword
Karate Do... The Way of Empty Hand
Judo.... The Way of Flexibility
Yari Do ...The Way of the Spear
Kyodo The Way Of the Bow (Archery)
Bushido...The Way of the Warrior.

I would say start with judo and then do something a little more intense like Brazilian Jiu Jitsu.

if you want to do a martial art, you should do muay thai if it's for defense. in english it's the "art of eight limbs" it's the best for self defense, against anyone and anything.

I reckon that it really doesn't matter what martial art you practice. It is an art, which comes in handy if you run into trouble. I have been practicing kyokushin karate since 1990 and never needed it 'on the street'. This martial art just so happened to be just what I looked for. Choose with your heart and not because you think you need an extra means to protect yourself. If this is your primary reason to choose a martial art, you'll probably quit within a few years. At least, this has been my experience for the past 20 years...

I would try Krav Maga. It's very effective, very easy to learn, and faces all those all day situations, like multiple opponents that try to bully someone. It was invented during WW II by Imi Lichtenfeld, and is still envolving. It has brutal offensive kicks/knees/ellbows from MuayThai, grappling/submissions from JiuJitsu and Judo, some boxing, it's own style of gun&knife disarm, etc.
there are different types of KravMaga, but they all have the same idea: train hard, fight easy!
You don't have to be a KungFu master, who is flyin' around, to protect yourself
And if you don't take the victim role, you will have less trouble.
That's it.
And btw: getting on a training partner at full force is an expierence you should try. It will get you a feeling of getting hit

@c/CSM Henson, T.
i heard about it. "Aloha!"
It has much similarities to KravMaga. And, yeah I like it
