Belt types vary greatly between styles and schools. When I hear black red belt, there are two possibilities.

A red belt with a black strip running the length of the belt. This is typically in the low kyu ranges in some styles, something about 3rd or 4th kyu, almost brown belt.

The entire belt alternating between black and red in striped sections that are about a foot long. I've seen this used to represent 5th and 6th degree black belts.

This is called a poom.In taekwondo, the red belt is commonly associated with the 2nd grade, that is, the level just before black belt. All taekwondo schools have their own colored belt systems, so some schools might use a brown belt instead of a red belt. Some schools might use both a brown belt and a red belt.This differs from the use of the red belt in karate. In karate, the red belt represents the tenth degree black belt.
