How to Book John Graden

John Graden’s law enforcement based training programs are straight out of the police academy. You will not have to learn karate, but you do have to want to learn. If you need self-defense, nothing else will do.

Seminar Fees and Travel

Each training course is customized to your needs, so there is flexibility in the arrangements.

Typically, a Training Seminar is $500 per hour with a one-hour minimum in Tampa Bay.

Events can also be set up as ticket purchases so people can register.
