How the hell does the 81-year-old Redheaded Stranger have one black-belt let alone five?  The man shatters a few stereotypes with his acceptance of this fifth fifth degree black-belt.

He was presented with his belt from Master Sam Um who has been teaching Nelson for over 20 years. Orginally, Willie just wanted to take martial arts to spend time with his family, but turned out to love it so much he continued to take classes even after his family stopped.

So the singer can roll a doob with one hand and kill you with his other.  Not bad.

Excuse me while I pack a bowl and contemplate WTF I’m doing with my life
