Not if the Oompa Lumpans have been selling the Klingons candy for many years, thereby building a tidy stash of cash, which they use to buy big scary weapons from the neighbouring country of Jedi, then tell the Klingons, that if they step one foot over their border, then they will blow their ugly butts to kingdom come ( another country much further away) as well as cutting off their supply of candy!
So that's the "martial way" of the Oompa Lumpa! Their superior candy making skill has enabled them to harmonise with the Klingon's and blend with the Jedi. Sounds like Aikido to me


This is like the story of the tea master. He attracted the attention of a ronin, who challenged him to a duel. The tea master tried to decline but since he was wearing his daisho he had to accept, even though he had never learnt to use them. The duel was arranged for the following day. So the tea master went to the local sword sensei and asked him to teach him. The sensei said let us have some tea. After which the sensei said, "I can teach you nothing." So the next day at the duel, the tea master asked the ronin to have tea with him first, due to his perfect technique when performing the ceremony the ronin ran away.
