Is there a list of martial artists with fourth dan blackbelts?

Yes, there are many such lists. Unfortunately, there is no single, certified, authentic or official listing. There are many martial arts organizations, and they each maintain their own listings (or not).Taekwondo - the premier organization for certifying black belts in taekwondo is the kukkiwon. Everyone who competes at the international level in tournaments sponsored by the World Taekwondo Federation (WTF) must have a certificate from the kukkiwon certifying their black belt level. In 1995, it was estimated that 2.3 million people world wide hold a kukkiwon dan certificate. If the kukkiwon maintains a list of fourth degree black belts, they have not made it available to the public.

Where on the Internet can you find out which Tae Kwon Do belts you earned?

The only places on the Internet with this information would be the Kukkiwon website for checking Kukkiwon registered Dan or Poom rank, or if your instructor or organization has a website of their own, then they might have records such as this available online. If your Black Belt Dan rank was certified by the Kukkiwon, you can look it up on the internet, or contact them for a copy of your certificate. If you are returning to training after a lengthy absence, then your taekwondo instructor can evaluate your skills, and make an appropriate rank assignment.

The KTA has its office at the Kukkiwon, but the chain of command places the Kukkiwon officials in charge of Taekwondo world-wide.

Who is the youngest women black belt for Tae Kwon Do in Ontario?

The youngest Black Belt ("Dan" or Degree) for male or female anywhere in the world is age 15, since under that age is called a "Poom" or Junior Black Belt. There are many Black Belts around the world, and in each country, but some schools and organizations are independent or separate from the Kukkiwon (World Taekwondo Headquarters) in Seoul, South Korea, and there is no way to know who they are awarding Black Belts to, and by what standards or criteria. The Kukkiwon website has a registry where by entering exact names and birthdate can reveal who has Poom or Dan rank from the Kukkiwon.
