Watch the insane knife training South Korean special forces go through

South Korean UDT/SEALsMUSAT.IncSouth Korean UDT/SEALs engage in knife training aboard a ship in the Gulf of Aden.

South Korea’s UDT/SEAL unit of elite frogmen in the Republic of Korea’s Navy have longstanding ties to US Navy SEALs, but some of their techniques, like a recent video displaying their knife training, shows their unique style of close quarters combat.

In the slides below, see the Korean UDT/SEALs training in combat gear and practicing a fearsome knife fighting regimen with blinding speed and complexity.

The video starts with the Korean UDT/SEALs practicing their form in unison.

Next they go to one-on-one duels, which are lightning-quick and insanely complicated.

The take down on display here is especially savage.

Then they do disarming and counter attack drills.

Finally, we hear from the UDT/SEALs themselves. 'In any situation, we will use whatever tactics necessary for the success of the mission.'
