I cannot emphasize reflexes enough, because in the end that is the factor that will determine how good your self-defence will be. Having the knowledge of all these arts will help nothing if you do not have the reflexes to apply it. So actually studying any art that develops reflexes will be a step in the right direction.
In The Souls of Black Folk (1903), W. E. B. Du Bois theorized black life in a white supremacist society as experiencing one’s self as split in two, a kind of internalization of a social division that produced what he called “double-consciousness,” or “this sense of always looking at one’s self through the eyes of others, of measuring one’s soul by the tape of a world that looks on in amused contempt and pity.” Although one may view oneself as capable, beautiful, intelligent, and worthy of respect, the social institutions one inhabits can express the opposite view. Part of the experience of oppression is to live this othering form of categorization in everyday social life. Even when one consciously strives to resist denigration and to hold fast to a positive self-relation, the social hierarchy insinuates itself into one’s self-understanding. In the most intimate moments of introspection, a unified self-consciousness escapes us because our self-understanding can never completely break from the social relations and ideologies that engender it. Social conflict is internalized, and it takes great strength just to hold oneself together; to live as a subject when others view and treat you as little more than an object, and when you are denied the freedoms, security, and resources enjoyed by others. Ultimately, only by undermining the social conditions of oppression through collective resistance can the double-consciousness Du Bois describes become one.
History: As a martial art, Krav Maga is one of the most unique in terms of its origin story, philosophy, and real-world application. While many other self-defense forms were developed over a course of sometimes hundreds of years to the point at which they could be considered an actual art, Krav Maga has only existed since somewhere between the ’30s and ’40s and serves what might be called an inelegant purpose. You see, Krav Maga is designed to disable attackers as quickly and efficiently as possible. It was created by a Hungarian-Israeli man named Emrich “Imi” Lichtenfeld as a means of defending the Jewish quarter from fascist groups in Bratislava, Czechoslovakia in the time leading up to World War 2. Eventually, Imi emigrated to Israel, where he began teaching combat classes to what would eventually become the Israeli Defense Forces. Now, it is taught around the world, both to members of the Armed Forces and to private citizens looking to expand their fighting and self-defense abilities.
Anything relying on strength, power and size – which many arts are ‘ conditioning’ works well, right up to the point your kick bounces off someone twice your size… Think also about tomorrow, not today, if strong 30 something, will your choice of martial art allow you to use it as you grow older and less flexible?
The downside of Karate for me was the overuse of blocks, as I am of a boxing background I have always felt that Karate was quite ‘stiff’. However that is not always a bad thing, and we have seen MMA fighters such as Lyota Machida do very well in the cage using Karate as a base. 
Richard calls it the “Give it a Name Game.” It’s a way to make yourself track any unusual things you’re seeing or hearing. If it’s a sound, it’s as simple as looking toward the source, whether it’s honking or footsteps or a dog barking. Then you give it a name, like “shitty cab driver” or “tiny yappy dog.” Then you do the same with your peripheral vision. “At any given moment when you’re outside, there’s tons of shit happening anything coming toward you, just toward you, acknowledge it. Just turn around, look at it, and acknowledge what it is.”
What the question is asking about is a hugely complex and ever changing topic. A topic that not only defies simple answers, but that is so big that an answer that is right in one context is wrong in another.
Wing Chun or similar. Ideal as uses techniques over strength, designed to be used against larger opponents. I used to spar with a Chinese lady who was tiny. It was a nighmare, like fighting a ghost…and I thought I was fast…
The Terminator has an internal rechargeable battery, which removes the need to find 9V batteries all the time. It also has a built in super bright LED light which is good for temporarily disorienting an aggressor, allowing you to move in for the “kill”.
If I find one who can (and how do I as completely inexperienced even judge that?), do I take a traditional Chinese martial art, or do I take Krav Maga, along with something like yoga, assuming that the kung fu of today will most likely either be ineffective or overly complex for self defense?
What I am saying is that there are different types of violence. What you think of as a ‘fight’ is such a minute number of these incidents that it hardly qualifies as a slice … it’s more like a sliver. Two equally matched opponents slugging it out or rolling around on the ground is the exception, not the rule of violence. Within those different types of violence are many different levels and participants can range from an upset person to a quarrelsome drunk, to a dangerous criminal to an insane person(2). While most incidents of violence are not intent on death and destruction, any number of them are … and that intent affects how they happen.
