    Hey guys, so I am new here, and have no clue about martial arts.

    So this is my first post and I would like to ask about learning Muay Thai and judo or Muay Thai and BJJ.
    I wanted to learn all three but my there isnt such schedule at my gym.

    Therefore, I would like to ask, is learning Muay Thai and judo or Muay Thai and BJJ more effective?
    P.S. My reason for learning these are for self - defense as I was picked on as a kid

    Try them all and see what you like the most.
    Believe it or not, but the best martial art is the one you will stick with long term. Whether that's judo, muay Thai or BJJ.

    For self defence, judo is quite good though. If anyone grabs you, you can immediately throw them on the ground and get away. Where BJJ is better suited for a scrap where you are on the ground. Which you do not want in a SD situation! Also don't take me up on this, but I think the muay Thai clinch and judo blends well.
    Also, sparring. You want to have resisting opponents, no matter the art. You picked arts that generally spar though, so that's good.

    Go to all classes and see what you enjoy.

    Great answer straight from the bat! Kudos to @TroldeAnsigt.
    "the best martial art is the one you will stick with" should be the insta-response to all "which martial art" threads.
