Presenter: Patrick Van Horne. Marine. Author of Left of Bang. How the Marine Corps. Combat Hunter Program Can Save Your Life

Instead of waiting for violence to occur and reacting to hostile individuals, what if you could prevent attacks from ever beginning in the first place?  “Bang” is the event that you want to keep from happening and is directly in the middle of a timeline. Getting left of bang means that you are able to recognize the pre-event indicators that are present leading up to bang and provide you with enough time to take proactive and preventative action.


Often called a “hunch” or a “gut instinct,” observations about the intentions of those around us are how people typically ensure their own safety, but people are rarely taught what they should specifically look for. 


The “Getting Left of Bang” webinar is designed for security professionals, law enforcement officers and concerned citizens and will provide the foundation in a behavioral approach to recognizing threats and attaining higher levels of situational awareness. The techniques and nonverbal observations taught in this webinar are combat proven in Iraq, Afghanistan, and applied in progressive law enforcement departments and security details across the country.


This presentation will teach participants: 

  • The history of the Combat Hunter program and the adversary capabilities it was designed to defeat.
  • How to more effectively employ the Cooper Awareness Color Code through enhanced mental preparedness and awareness.
  • Make better and more accurate decisions with limited information/time through the application of heuristics.
  • Establish environmental baselines that identify behavioral anomalies and aid decision-making.
  • Understand non-verbal communication to include facial expressions, gestures, touching, physical movements, and posture.
  • Use easily observable nonverbal cues to classify a person or group’s behavior into the four primary behavioral clusters.
