LOL Brian,

I am not qualified to make serious comments or judgements on what any one does, however all american piece in the name does imply that your dojo is independant from the traditional goju ryu, which is fine in my book. However teaching goju ryu without the senior instructors knowing the full kata of the system would seem a little wrong IMO.

progression, I can honestly say I prefer regression..................................... LOL LOL

I do like your belt system, makes total sense to me !
