It depends, but normally you call them sensei. Meaning 'someone that has gone before' Sensei is showing them respect. Depending on their rank, they may have other titles such as Hanshi. When I'm in the dojo, I call my instructor sensei. When we aren't in the dojo, I call him Bob.

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.
