What is an expert in karate?

You would expect the question, "When will I become a master in karate?" Master in the Asian sense is just another word for Sensei which is another word for teacher. This is not necessarily a meaning of "expert."

The second part that needs consideration is, "Who and what criteria says expert?" An expert can be a person who has a comprehensive and authoritative knowledge of or skill in karate. Having or involving such knowledge or skill he or she provides "advice" on "handling" the particulars of the discipline and in this particular case "karate."

So, if you have special knowledge or ability and can perform skillfully the you are an expert. You are an adept: having or showing knowledge and skill and aptitude; technical: of or relating to or requiring special knowledge to be understood; skillfulness by virtue of possessing special knowledge, etc.

There is no point where one leaves the realm of a "layman" and enters into the realm of "expert." In the wold of martial arts everything remains up for grabs and it therefore becomes an individual determination as to whether one is either an expert or not an expert.
