I'd recommend BJJ or Brazilian Ju-Jitsu. I knew a guy who owned a gym that taught BJJ (basically they trained semi-pro MMA fighters) who let me work out there last summer, and I'm fucking serious when I say it was the greatest summer of my life. The workouts weren't just practicing kicks and punches, they also included very heavy cardio while teaching techniques for fighting/rolling and actual sparring. Now I had always been pretty active with my HS basketball and football team, but still had a little gut that I absolutely despised, but these workouts, 5 nights a week for 2 hours, got rid of every single bit of fat. I lost at least 50 lbs of fat and gained about 20 in muscle. I'm 6'7" so I'm a pretty big, decently muscular guy, but I went from 255lbs down to 215lbs in 1 summer. I recommend MMA training to anyone who wants to learn to fight and lose weight/getting in shape.

I like Muay Thai and Kickboxing (the combat kind, not the watered down version)

If you really want to defend yourself , I can recommend "Krav Maga". It is a martial art which is used by many police and military forces in the world. Years ago I went "Judo" , it is a Japanese martial art about technique and body control.One of my teachers have got the black belt (I think it is the highest rank) and had an motorcycle accident. He told me that his Judo skills saved his ass, because the years of training improved his body control and so so he controlled his fall. Depends on what do you want to achieve. Both of them will improve your fitness.
