No, none on the East Coast. I am doing a four day sword intensive in Tallahassee but no randori intensives. I have done them in NY, Baltimore, N Carolina, and Tallahassee... If someone wants to host one they can always contact me but I have some other things I am working on right now.
Frankly, Seattle is quite easy to get to. With warning we can usually get folks to and from the airport and find a place to stay. I wouldn't stay away just because it's the West Coast. I can make it cheaper for someone at my own dojo than I can on the road.
We're getting a number of out of town registrations fro the Labor Day Weekend Randori and Weapons Intensive. This event is open to folks from all styles and affiliations. Most of the weapons work we do is principle oriented and not really style specific. We'll cover empty hand randori with just grabbing attacks, empty hand randori with striking attacks included, randori against attackers with knives, and three person shinai randori.
This is a great event for anyone getting ready for Dan Testing. A number of dojos have started sending their candidates to attend one of these intensives before they test. So far, everyone who has attended has nailed the randori on their tests so I think the process is working...
