    For competition something like bjj. It's relatively safe and the common blows you get are just getting your muscles sore instead of building up low level brain damage
    For actually being ready to fight a striking sport like boxing or muay thai since you can't grapple and control more than 1 at a time.

    Depends on what's in your area, but the main thing you're looking for is for it to have a competition focused culture because that readily weeds out most bullshido and mcdojos. The fundamentals are pretty universal, so don't worry too much about "the best" just pick something that's close to you that you'll actually practice consistently.

    For grappling: judo, wrestling, bjj, sambo

    For striking: boxing, muay thai, kickboxing, savate

      Best for what? Looking cool throwing kicks? TDK
      Real fighting? Box, kick boxing, muay thai if you are into strinking, judo for takedowns, wresling if you like grappling

      Muay thai/boxing + bjj/judo/wrestling

      Or just do mma and cover all your bases

      Boxing, Wrestling, Muay Thai, BJJ.

      Wrestling and boxing. Everything else is BS.

        Search through MMA gyms until you find one with grappler trainers who used to wrestle. That or literally try to solicit a local college wrestler/former wrestler to teach you.

      Stuffing takedowns hasn't been enough since the Dagestan meta took over the game circa 2018. They will just chain them together until one gets you.

      Capoeria is the answer for cool looking kicks. TKD is inferior both practically and aesthetically. In addition, everything cool about tkd is present in miay thai but actually useful (see: saenchai cartwheel kicks)

        Plenty of nak muay crosstrain in TKD though. Its fast but light kick supplement the slow, heavy kicks of muay thai.

      >It's what the Israeli Army teaches its soldiers
      Which they use exclusively for harming women and children. Not useful against adult men in a self defense situation, which is probably OPs goal.

      Krav is just watered down MMA + some situational tricks like small joint manipulation, eye-gouging, crotch shots, etc.

    TKD has relatively low injury risk and is reasonable for pretending to be an anime character with its spinning kicks and shit. People might think you're a paedophile for taking it up in adulthood, but to be frank that's probably true of any martial arts.

    Sambo for grappling, Muay Thai for striking.
    Just drop the stupid muay thai stance once you've got the gist, it's meant for fighting other thai fighters, not in open brawls.

    TKD is for children. You're going to be a full grown man in a class full of teens and children throwing wimpy kicks.
    Just do Muay Thai (most of the time it's kickboxing in the west anyways because nobody likes to clinch). TKD is a good suplementary martial art but its mostly useless

    If you don't want to just grapple and actually do cool shit do muay thai.

    Best kung fu style? Whatever style where the instructor cross trained in kickboxing, muay thai or mma or if possible just do sanda but you are unlikely to find that.

    Just do combat sports like kickboxing or muay thai.
    If you want to use a kung fu style in a fight then pick any of the following styles hung gar, baji quan, xing yi quan, tong bei quan or wushu and cross train in kickboxing, muay thai or mma.
    The mentioned style do not teach you how to fight because no kung fu place does real sparring but they are very good styles with a lot of elements that if you know how to fight will really elevate your game wich modern combat sports don't always care about or know how to teach it correctly and if you cross train you can learn a move and then try it in sparring, this is the only way to actually be able to use kung fu to fight.

    If you are curious about what's good about these styles is that hung gar teaches you to have a very strong stance and body wich allows you to take heavier punches and kicks more easily.
    Baji quan has brutal steeping elbows, is like muay thai but instead of clinching to elbow, baji quan closes the distance to connect with an elbow to the face or body and is also very explosive.
    Xing yi quan teaches the best body mechanics for different purposes like relaxation for speed and how to hit very hard too.
    Tong bei quan is similar to xing yi quan but prioritizes body relaxation and can throw very hard shots with minimal effort.
    Wushu or Shaolin kung fu is very athletic and explosive, has a lot of jumps, flying kicks and acrobatics wich will improve your athletism.

    Note, im pointing out the positive aspects of these styles but none of them teach how to fight because they don't do sparring so is obligatory to learn a combat sport to learn it.
    Popular styles like wing Chun and tai chi are more like a cult so you are less likely to find a legit teacher that will teach you the useful aspect.

      If you can't find a teacher for any of the styles mentioned just do combat sports and watch a tutorial on trapping hands to do it in sparring.
