Am I too old to start martial arts?

Absolutely not. You should be clear what you want to get out of a martial arts class and talk to the instructor about your goals to make sure what is being taught lines up with your goals.

How long will it take me to get my black belt?

We usually say it's not the destination you should be focused on but the journey instead. Depending on what age you start, it takes around 4-5 years but can take shorter or longer. Many factors go into this process. Remember the belt merely holds your uniform together. The knowledge and skill acquired are the most important things you should take from any martial arts instruction.
