    I was informed that at black belt status - 1st Degree - that it was recognised as a formal Degree qualification - does anything know if this is correct please?

    what? only for WTF Sport but it's not a "qualification" for the real world. Maybe at 4th dan then you can Teach.

    Id like to know also if anyone sees a blackbelt as a formal Degree qualification? Cant say Ive heard of it.

    Not formally AFAIK. I've been a 1st Dan for 9 years and (here) it's generally acceptable no matter what degree you are so long as you're a black belt holder, to own a club or unit and bring your students to grading exams. However, the formal rule is (from memories, CMIIW):
    • 1st Dan may be examiner assistant
    • 2nd Dan may be examiner up to 1st Kup (certificate issued by country governing body)
    • 3rd Dan may be examiner up to 1st Dan
    • 4th Dan may issue certificate up to 1st Dan (may be conflict of interest with country governing body, hence usually 4th Dan joins the governing body in this case)
