    My dojang has the exact same problem except we do have two slots but the lower belts won't shift over to our less advanced course. We can't teach the stuff we would really like to teach to the red belts because of the massive amounts of yellow stripes or yellow belts.

    I'm fifteen years old and I know that my older black belt friends (much older then me) kick my butt every single time. Although you may lose your stamina over time you will never lose those techniques you learned over years of hard work and dedication.

    Little Kids and Hitting

    I would advise you to tell your Master, A black belt simply cannot act like that in class. He needs to be taught a good lesson about manners and respect.
