How stupid are you? Threatening a teen. He could have called the police and pressed charges.
As some one that dated an abusive asshole in the past, i learned it takes a lot more than simply calling them and telling them someone threatened to beat you within an inch of your life.
What were you trying to accomplish? Forcing him to stay in a relationship he didn't want to be in, by intimidating him? Your daughter being in a relationship with someone who didn't want in it, and was only with her because her dad threatened him? So many things wrong with this. I hope this has taught you to stay out of her business. She needs to learn to get her heart broken, deal with it, and rebound from it. Be there for her when that happens. That will help her out a lot more in life than "protecting" her from being hurt.
You do know that a “black belt” basically means beginner (that he’s demonstrated he knows all the basic forms).
It doesn't just mean they "know" the forms, it means that can use them fluidly and without thinking, and have spent at least two years with lessons multiple times a week with it being far more common for someone who attends the class twice a week to take five years to reach first dan. It takes around twenty years to reach fifth dan, which is the lowest level that means the practitioner is considered a master. Meaning that someone who started lessons when they were a child (and some sense I will allow children as young as age four to study at their dojo) could very easily be a master in the style they learned in their early 20's. However, the ranks go all the way up to tenth dan-or what is called a tenth degree black belt in western countries- which is someone who has created and largely perfected a new and unique martial arts style. So yeah, the kid could in fact be a master, and OP just didn't know what dan he was ranked at.
