Willie Nelson is now 81 years old, and to help celebrate...Nelson received his 5th-Degree black belt in the art of Gong Kwon Yu Sul  the other day at a ceremony in Austin, TX. He was awarded this honor from Grand Master Sam Um.

Yes...who would have thought that the laid back, soft spoken hippie and marijuana advocate could be such a badass at the same time? Nelson has always been physically active since his youth, playing baseball, football, and track & field in high school, and is an avid runner and bike rider today. Must be a good reason he can still perform for crowds at his age.

As if this guy couldn't get any more awesome.
