Kung fu and a shotgun are both physical violence so I don't know how your

Your reference to Judah's ruling is an incorrect reading of Scripture.
Judah's rule is conditional and only lasts as long as "the obedience of the
nations is his." Joseph on the other hand, "the archers savagely attacked
him, they shot at him and pressed him hard, but their bow was splintered by
