TEXAS — Country music icon Willie Nelson is known for many things, but most do not know that the legend is also a fifth degree black belt in a form of Korean martial arts.

People reports Nelson will get the recognition in a ceremony held on Monday.

The singer apparently started practicing the technique when he first got to Nashville.

Willie Nelson turns 81 Tuesday.
