My personal preference is Muay Thai as I love the solid stance, "cause and effect" system that it operates. If i kick you and it doesn't have an effect then it doesn't score etc.
I also think that in a 'real life' situation trying to throw and effective kick would be a serious downfall as there are too many factors to go wrong although the Muay Thai clinch work and grappling coupled with a ground game would stand you in good stead on the street.
