Black belt is the highest. Though traditional Okinawa karate uses a red and white belt to indicate 7th and 8th degree black belt and solid red for 9th and 10th. Many American schools use the red belt as a kyu level below black belt.

Each style of karate sets its own rules and promotions. In some styles, dark blue is the highest rank. A style could set the brown belt as the highest, but most use the black belt. In traditional karate, the highest possible belt is red.

It will depend entirely on your style of karate and the school. In my style a red and white belt indicates 8th and 9th degree Black Belt. A 10th degree is solid red.

It depends on the style. In traditional styles, a red belt is the highest you can reach, representing 9th and 10th Dan levels. The 7th and 8th Dan wear a red and white belt.

You don't master karate at brown belt. You don't normally ever master karate. The best thing to do is to practice often and hard.

No, he reached brown belt in karate. Then he studied Jeet Kine Do.

It depends on how you look at it. White belt is generally considered the lowest belt and at the other extreme is black. Depending on the art, there are often many levels of black belt. Typically in the Okinawa arts the highest level belt, 10th Dan, is represented with a red belt.

In normal situations karate is a noun and would be lower case. However, when coupled with a specific style it becomes a proper noun. I study karate. He has a black belt in karate. I study Shido Kan Karate. He has black belt in Shitokan Karate.

I have never seen any records indicating that he had a black belt, or had even studied karate.
