you can't judge much of anything just from a website, but for what it's worth, it looks like 31 flavors of bullshit to me. "the D.C. Martial Arts Academies have produced more than 300 Black Belts since the original Academy in Bethesda was founded in 1994"--ahem.
I am trying best as I can to keep an open mind about this, and every instructor have their own way of doing things blah blah blah. But if you feel that advancement in rank is in no way related to progression in skill, then you might want to reconsider your position.
How about your instructors' instructors? Do they train near by? Is it possible to visit their schools and find someone of your rank to spar against? Just a thought.
