Highest degree in karate black belt ever achieved in world?

The highest rank in karate is 10th degree. There is normally only one in each style. And it requires many years of dedication to the art. It is seldom, if ever, awarded to anyone under about 65 years old. ________________________________________________________________ Since this question has been added to both the "Karate," and "Taekwondo" categories, it should be noted that Karate, and Taekwondo are not the exact same thing. "Karate" is a term that has been used to describe both the ancient Chinese hand fighting of the Tang Dynasty, and a specific Japanese version of Martial Art (such as Shotokan Karate-do), as well as being used in a general sense to include all forms of unarmed combat. In its early stages, Taekwondo was often referred to as "Korean Karate," and while many still use this phrase today, others consider this to be misleading, and inaccurate since Taekwondo is now a distinctive Korean Martial Art framed mostly around native Korean fighting techniques, tactics, and traditional culture. The highest rank in Taekwondo has traditionally been the 9th Dan (Degree) with the 10th Dan being only an honorary rank awarded posthumously, or to a 9th Dan who retires from active teaching, yet remains as an advisor. However, in recent times, the Kukkiwon, World Taekwondo Headquarters in Seoul, Korea, has listed the 10th Dan as the highest rank. Many Taekwondo organizations still hold to the 9th Dan as the senior rank, and some have only one 9th Dan awarded to the current President or Kwanjang of their association.
