This story from the Associated Press ran today:

"Buddhist monks wage war on drugs"

GOLDEN HORSE MONASTERY, Thailand -- He was a soldier and champion boxer, but now the burly abbot leads a band of "Little Buddhas," some as young as 7, who practice martial arts and meditation, then ride into the mountains to fight the scourge of drugs.
...
Thai-style boxing is practiced every evening, and Kru Ba, tucking his robes between his legs to reveal a powerful, densely tattooed torso, happily demonstrates techniques.
Using knees, elbows, feet and fists, the monk shows how he could disable his young sparring partner if he applied real force.
