Either is good. Personally I do Japanese Jujitsu and i like it a lot more than Brazilian which i have also done. I have practiced Japanese Jujitsu with a man who was around 400 pounds and he was great at it.

Should you take Kickboxing or Jujitsu or both Im 510 at 170pounds i want to learn self defense so i could protect my self in the streets and my friend told me it is a good exercise?

These martial arts have their place in a sports venue, but they are not very effective self-defense systems unless you are an advanced practitioner. The best self-defense systems are non-traditional eclectic systems that utilize gross motor skills. All the traditional arts rely on very well trained fine motor skills. But fine motor skills in an average person degrade more and more under high stress, fast paced, self-defense situations. Fine motor skills take years to learn. Gross motor skills are the motor skills you learned as a young child, and are optimized in high stress self-defense situations. If you want to spend years learning a traditional art, one of the better choices is Japanese (as opposed to Brazilian) Jujitsu. You spend a lot of time on the ground in Brazilian Jujitsu, and that's not wise if you find yourself facing more than one opponent.

What are the pros and cons of Jujitsu?

Like all martial arts, Jujitsu is designed to help an individual become a better person. As a martial art it is catagorized in the grappling family, meaning that the primary focus is on grabbing and controlling the opponent. It can be hard on the joints for an older individual that is just starting out and dangerous for someone that is still young and growing. Jujitsu, contrasted to Judo, is aimed more at actual combat. Judo, while also effective in combat, is focused on competition and not causing permanent damage. ---------------- In the interest of a productive, informative answer, I'd like to comment on the answer given above and hope the original respondent will reply."Like all martial arts, Jujitsu is designed to help an individual become a better person." Better in what sense? Why would it be created for anything other than self-defence? The fact that mental/spiritual elements appear is immaterial, nothing more than a remnant of the Japanese warrior class. Such philosophy existed independently of martial arts, so it is apparent that martial arts themselves appear out of the necessity to learn how best to deal with violence. "As a martial art it is catagorized in the grappling family, meaning that the primary focus is on grabbing and controlling the opponent." Firstly, there are no martial arts "families" in the way that is described. Secondly, Japanese jujitsu encompassed far more than grappling techniques - remember it is part of a complete system that stems from the samurai. Brazilian jujitsu on the other hand is a pure grappling art, but to refer to jujitsu as a whole as solely grappling is misleading."It can be hard on the joints for an older individual that is just starting out..." True, as can any other intense physical activity. However, assuming proper care is taken, even fairly elderly individuals can reach a good level of performance without injuring their joints."...and dangerous for someone that is still young and growing." Dangerous in what sense? Dangerous to the development of bones? This is as true of jujitsu as it is of gymnastics or weightlifting, i.e. not at all. Dangerous in the sense that young, boisterous individuals might injure themselves through lack of attention? This is at least 10 times more likely to happen playing soccer than jujitsu. "Jujitsu, contrasted to Judo, is aimed more at actual combat. Judo, while also effective in combat, is focused on competition and not causing permanent damage." Is it aimed at actual combat or competition? Contradictory statements like this only serve to confuse. Judo is primarily a sport, and was developed as such, although one's training could incorporate it and focus it in a self-defence context as many thousands do so successfully.
