I'd say Jujitsu would be more practical in the real world military.
I can hardly imagine a close combat situation where I'd be able to square up an opponent, and deliver a roundhouse kick and a jump kick to the chin with my helmet, webbing and weapon slung around me. I would not be confident of having my kick causing much effect against an opponent wearing body armor.
Jujitsu on the other hand, trains with grappling, submission holds and also includes a few lethal moves that can incapacitate an opponent. Combined with some kicks, punches and blocks, I find it more well rounded for combat usage.
Everytime I watch Saving Private Ryan, the scene where the one of them gets stabbed while being pinned down by a german soldier, I'd be wondering how jujitsu could have saved his life and gave him an edge in that encounter.

None are any good if you do not practice with diligence and condition reflexes. The best is the one you know and are good at. In a fight it always comes down too "the firstest with the mostest" anyway.
