Can you call a black belt a noob in Karate if she's not good even though the person who wants to say it is a white belt and is still better than her?

Not if you want to continue studying at that school! My Sensei would throw a white belt out if they were so arrogant as to make such a statement. You are insulting the senior student and their instructor. And a white belt doesn't know what good is.No. Karate is not just about how good someone is physically. It's also about knowledge, attitude, discipline. Chances are, as a white belt, you know one or two kata. She, as a black belt, probably knows 10-15 if not more.I learned a long time ago that even if you are physically better, that has no bearing on whether you know more. Your arrogant attitude is completely contradictory to the nature you're supposed to learn, and you're failing all the basic rules of discipline and respect.

Who is the youngest black belt in Tae Kwon Do?

There is no central authority for recording who has a black belt (other than the Kukkiwon - see comments below); therefore, no way of knowing who the youngest black belt would be. Some schools will not allow a child to get a black belt until a certain age (which also varies widely among schools). _________________________________________________ According to the promotion regulations at the Kukkiwon, world Taekwondo headquarters in Seoul, South Korea, the youngest age for a Black Belt is 15. Under that it is a Jr. Black Belt called a pum (aka: poom) and they wear a half red, half black belt with similar trim on the collar of the uniform. Nevertheless, many instructors around the world present children with school certificates that call them "Black Belts" and Dan (which is really an adult rank), and let them wear the full Black Belts that is traditionally reserved for adults.
