do boxing, muay thai, judo, bjj, or/and wrestling. You could do Krav maga too, but aikido takes a while to learn

This guy is the only one who named anything worth learning.  BJJ no-gi is great, or with gi, but if you can learn no-gi Brazillian Jijitsu, its better for real life.  

Muay Thai is most bad ass stand up.  Wrestling or boxing, solid also.  Judo is like....ehhhh, if you were in school you'd minor in Judo, but major in something else :)     

I know many mention Krav, but really Muay Thai vs a Krav student, assuming same attributes and experience the advantage will be in Muay Thai.  Though anything can happen in a fight. 
Not necessarily.  In a 1 on 1 fight in the ring with rules the Muay Thai Fighter would have an advantage.  On the street the Muay Thai Fighter would have very limited knowledge on fighting multiple attackers, knife deffense, handgun deffense, ground fighting, etc.  In Krav Maga they teach you to do whatever it takes to win because you are training to fight for your life.  Kicks to the groin, eye gouging, hitting vital organs, breaking bones, crushing your opponents wind pipe, and all manners of self deffense from common attacks, holds, and chokes. Muay Thai is a sport, Krav Maga is a reality based system.  Also Krav Maga uses all of the combative techniques from Muay Thai that are usefull on the street.  Knees, elbows, punches, kicks, clinches, you name it.

As a Krav Practitioner who has also done Muay Thai and BJJ, I would definately be using Krav in the street because they train you to fight in the street with no rules and no mercy.  You practice fighting in the dark, fighting while you are exhausted, fighting 5 guys at once, fighting guys with weapons, getting held up at gunpoint, getting choked from every possible situation, blocking cheapshots, situational awareness, and my school also has a carry to conceal handgun courses that get you a permit to conceal a handgun anywhere in the state.

What is everybodies experience with martial arts? would you recomend learning them? I was thinking about signing up for aikido. Would you guys recomend another school of martial arts?
It really just depends on what you are after?  What do you want out of martial arts? It it's for sports, fitness, competetion, spirituality, and all the other shit, then you have quite a number to choose from!

But if you want pure self defense, then go for one of the Reality Based Self Defense systems out there.  Here's some instructors/systems you can check out-----Senshido (Richard Dimitri), Tony Blauer, Jim Grover/Kelly MacCann, Geoff Thompson, Contemporary Fighting Arts, Krav Maga, Marc "Animal" MacYoung, Target Focus Training, Scientific Fighting Congress (Hock Hocheim), Jim Wagner, any CQB/CQC (Military Combatives), Paul Vunak.

Also check out Eskrima/Arnis/Kali.  The Filipino martial arts are very good for self defense, as close as you can get to RBSD systems. Check out Paul Vunak and his organisation.

My top pick? In order...

1) Senshido
2) Tony Blauer
3) Kelly MacCann
4)TFT
5)Mar "Animal" MacYoung

For Martial arts...

1) Eskrima
2) MMA
3) Muay Thai
4)Wrestling
5)BJJ

3,4,and 5 are in MMA, as well as boxing. So if you want all around skills, then go for MMA. Add Eskrima for weapons.

The RBSD systems also have elements of  the other arts, as well as tactics and strategies designed purely for survival on the streets.

By the way, you don't need to be super fit for self defense. Of course, it helps, but not necesarry.  A good self defense system/instructor should be able to teach you how to apply your shit in whatever condition you are in, age, and gender.

Hope this helps...

"I know many mention Krav, but really Muay

in Muay Thai."

This is how people who don't practice martial arts talk.

Martial arts is fun and helps your growth. if your talking to a girl and it comes out in the convo that you do martial arts then you can show her some moves. this is a good way to get very physical. you can role play and tease her on her technique. you can show off a little and make yourself look like you can handle yourself and protect her. i think Martial arts are awesome. show her how to escape from a bear hug-then you get her to hug you and show her what to do then its time to switch roles and you bear hug her
Lame.

Why? I show girls BJJ all the time... It's a great way to get physical and have fun teaching them something.

Yes you can.  Thats why when UFC was first getting going all the BJJ guys were winning.  Cause those who stuck with a karate style of kung fu couldn't stop it.  They had zero defense against it. 

If your into mma, then you have to learn a bit of everything.  But if your only going to learn ONE SINGLE thing.  Then you should COMPARE to other styles.  If the OP is going to learn just one style it should be a good one.

WHY the hell would you waste your TIME and MONEY, on Tae Kwon Do, Wing Chun, Jeet Kune Do, or any other method thats NOT PROVEN too be effective.  So with this mindset you can saftely say Muay Thai which is proven and better then Tae Kwon Do, Wing Chun, Jeet Kune Do. Or any other bullshit out their just after your money. 

---------------------------
You can train against knife attacks thats great.  LOL slow moving guy comming over the top with a knife? Who does that?  Here's your defense against a knife attack: RUN DUDE!  Create distance.  JUMP in your car lol.

Each sentence proving once more you have no idea what you're talking about. Lold several times, it is clear your martial arts experience consists of watching ufc and ends there. Stop trying to contribute.
