Systema - Russian martial art (I guess Specnaz practise this too)

-pragmatic, used to defeat enemy and not to be defeated
-focus rather on smart ways of fight and basic principles than on strictly memorised moves - so improvisational and useful in various conditions

Baguazhang (kung fu) because it is an inside art and it is very quick, quiet and powerful.

I was under the impression that ninjitsu used weapons? Especially improvised weapons and farming tools. Throwing stars were born out of improvised sharpened metal objects by the ninjitsu.

Damn, the "weaponless" part caught a few of the ones I've been considering. Uhhh, probably Jujutsu then.

I would choose general MMA over even krav maga.

Of those listed I would choose Muay Thai because of how devastating it is at distance.
