Thrs is an interesting connection between Lord Parshuram and Brahmarishi Vishwamitra in both action and lineage.  
Their legends have fascinated me, in a sense of one who was a glorious King, takes to penance after insults at the hand of another, Rishi Vashistha and another ++

picks weapon in order to bring justice. Both be called Kshatriya and Brahmin.  

Vishvamitra had faced numerous difficulties along his journey towards becoming a Brahmarishi, making him mellow, freeing him from his greed, jealousy, anger…++

Well known that he tutored Lord Ram.

After facing thousands of years of massive problems, Vishvamitra was finally conferred the title of Brahmarishi by both Lord Brahma and Rishi Vasishtha. ++

Lord Parshuram, incarnation of Lord Vishnu, in literal meaning, Rama with an axe.

Parashuram and the saptarishi Agastya are regarded as the founders of kalaripayattu, the oldest martial art in the world. Parashurama was a master of shastravidya, or the art of weaponry, +

as taught to him by Lord Shiva.

In a manner of speaking, both Lord Parshuram and Brahmarishi have in common is one took up arms in pursuit of justice and other gave up arms in pursuit of knowledge; it nearly seems like exchanged destiny one generation apart~it is in effect +

The valour of both is irrefutable, the knowledge and grace of both unparalleled.
The people under these Gotras also demonstrate some amount of these traits (personal opinion) in varying degrees – quick tempered, pursue justice and knowledge, intelligent and ++

highly self respecting, often confused as pride. I don’t believe it was negative; i consider it quite an impressive quality, much lacking in many today.

Both took up alternate destiny in order to protect their honor.

Lord Parshuram, incarnation of Lord Vishnu, who actually picks up a weapon, having been born a Brahmin for the sake of teaching a lesson to Arrogant Royalty and Kings; he was unlike the other Brahmin, carried traits of a Kshatriya included aggression, warfare and valour. ++

Hence, he is called as a ‘Brahma-Kshatriya’ as he had skills from both the clan.
One legend is that once King Kartavirya Sahasrarjuna and his army forcibly tried to take away Parshuram’s father’s magical cow named Kamdhenu. ++

Arudra signifies the golden red flame and Lord Shiva performs the dance in the form of this red-flamed light.
