Self Defense Training In Texas?

Self Defense Class?
I'm looking for a self defense class in the Austin area that teaches real life close quarters scenario training. Something that helps when you don't have your gun, can't get to it immediately, or gives you time to draw your gun. Any recommendations out there?

What Style of Martial Arts?
I'm also thinking it would be good to start taking ongoing martial arts classes. I'm thinking something that doesn't take a life time to learn and is practical in street fighting/close quarters. Most fights seem to involve grappling, so something that teaches that seems like a smart choice. I'm not interested in looking pretty or being able to do the splits. I'm interested in protecting my family and being able to walk away from a bad situation (hopefully without needing to go to the hospital)

I'd recommend KR Training.
