Well, Knight Templars we not "monks trained to kill", in first place they were knights, already trained to kill, that chose to become monks. Knight Templars (also Knights Hospitaller, and all the other Warrior Monk Orders of Jerusalem) only enlisted already trained knights as their military.
From the other side, first Sōhei also seem to be warriors who go to the monastery to live the rest of their lives, but were forced back to arms for political reasons; only later training started at the monasteries. But after that Sōhei monks become a military structure that trained its' warriors "from scratch", yet experienced warriors were always welcome.
And - WHOOPS! - why does a Templar wear a Hospitaller's Cross on his robes? Tepmplar cross looks pretty much different.
