Gentlemen, we all know the world can be a dangerous place. Some would argue it’s becoming safer and others would argue it’s becoming more dangerous.
Either way, the potential for you encountering a threat in your day-to-day life is a real possibility – and one that we, as men, should be prepared for. My guest today, Patrick Van Horne and the author of Left of Bang teaches us how to use non-verbal communication to assess threats, the common physical language all humans use, how to use “combat profiling” to keep yourself and others safe, and how the Marine Corps’ Combat Hunter Program could save your life.

Patrick Van Horne
Men, I am stoked to introduce you to my guest today.
His name is Patrick Van Horne. He is a former infantry Captain with the United States Marine Corps and has been instrumental in helping develop and teach the Marine Corps Combat Hunter Program to his fellow marines, military, law enforcement officers, and civilians.
His book, Left of Bang, has been recommended to me over and over again and, a couple months ago, I finally picked up a copy. I think I read it in two days – I could not put it down.
Since it was one of the best books I’ve read this year, I decided to reach out and extend an invite to have Patrick on the show.
Guys, let me tell you, he does not disappoint, as he talks about how he helped implement, develop, and train this course to his Marines during his two deployments to Iraq and, more recently his work with his behavioral analysis training company, The CP Journal.
