    Krav Maga would work well against the average thug. Though on it's own not very much against a trained fighter regardless of style. Still one to consider. However, I would advice Jeet Kune Do the Tommy Carruthers approach. But also put some grappling in the mix in case you get rushed. Of which there is a good chance of happening when they notice you can throw a punch.

    Should I do another martial art (if I do, preferably a striking one) or should I focus on this one for now?

    Go and try it before you decide

    I would focus on one for a while at least. You will get a lot more out of Judo the more you train it, one a week isn't really enough so say you take two lessons

    To add another style to it requires 3 days a week of MA which I would guess it a bit change from what you are doing. Everyone is different but I have seen it lead to burn out

Once you have learnt how to do that they will teach you how to live off the land (or other peoples at least) and then get by asking people if you can fight them for their dog. If that fails, the least you will learn is how not to pay your taxes and drive around in stolen vehicles without being bothered by the law!

    Or you could try Muay Thai if you wanna kick/punch people.
    So, you don't like Pikeys? i couldn't understand. BTW hating those travelers gypsies isn't racist?

    Jeet kung fu is **** as ****! Why are you advocating such crap? Do you have any evidence it works?

    Well they're not a race, so it couldn't really be racism now could it? We "hate" them for cultural and behavioural reasons.
    And because they are unwashed.

    First off, the quality and material taught totally depends on the school/instructor. As always. I agree there is a lot of garbage out there and a lot of schools tend to over emphasize on the technical forgetting it's all about the fight. I advice Tommy Carruthers take on JKD because his training is hardcore any way you look at it. And I'm not referring to the demo vid that's circulates on YT. He's got a few vids on his FB-page that give an impression of the things he does during his classes (https://www.facebook.com/#!/thomas.carruthers.12). I don't know if it's open to the general public. But if not, let me know. I'll try and see if I relay one of his vids another way.

    Focus on judo for awhile. If you're training hard its going to take some time for your body to adapt anyway, so expect to be sore for awhile. I wouldn't think about adding a striking art until judo becomes a fairly routine workout.

    If you're gonna have a "fair go" boxing is the thing. If your concern is jumped by groups of travellers, get some quality running shoes.

    Nothing you train will turn a group stomp into str33t victory. Work on your situational awareness.

    Train in a combat sport. Judo, Boxing, Kick boxong, Muay Thai, and leave asshole friends at home when you go out. More trouble than they're worth.

    Let's see, what else? Avoid Aikido, get your cardio and conditioning up.
