looking for a seminar/training opportunity in the USA

Sometime in December or January I'll be leaving the Wado wilderness of northern Thailand for a short family visit in the USA. It would be great if I could combine my visit with a chance to get in a few days of good training. Anywhere in the northeast or northwest would be doable (NYC would be ideal)...
