I saw one of my former instructors used it in a public exhibition during a demo. However, I teach my students to keep it private.

Wow, I've been off line for a few weeks and have certainly missed some lively discussions.

My "low ranking" opinion - keep it like you learned it from your instructor.  We do all techiques and forms as we were taught.   Though we may at times try different variations of techniques, the root techique should never change.

Question, going back to some former questions - I was a Kajukenbo event - Won't say the year or place - and a higher ranking member of Kajukenbo - won't say who - wanted all of us to do palama 1 as part of our warm up before the seminar.  Before we started, he explained that it would probably be different from what most of us knew as palama 1 and he explained the differences and why the changes were made.  Sijo was there.  Would you have considered this disrespectful?  Is it OK as long as the school or individual can still run the tech/form in its original state as taught by ones instructor?
