SoKoperator In South Korean Dynamic SWAT Training

Train how you operate. SoKoperator has you covered:

Tactical bucket hat brAh.

Don’t let the the shot whistles and robotic moves at the start get you down… IT GETS BETTER.

1:30 – Is this what a bad guy looks like in South Korea?  Is that maybe what a North Korean threat looks like?  Some knockoff sus Waldo-looking character with True Religion jeans, a bad haircut, and an AK?  Either way, SoKoperator kills them all with the quickness.

1:46 – Hybrid Mozambique techniques on deck.

I’m about to quit commenting on timestamps at this point because there’s a lot of the same fulling one guy with several holes in random patterns before moving on to the next guy.

2:32 – Who wouldn’t want to shoot a bad guy, then immediately knock some plates down just to show bystanders what’s up?

Holy these moves are are so damn crucial.

3:35 – Up close and personal with the facepalm and gut shots.

3:47 – Increase angle of handgun and go for dick shots.

3:59 – As if getting shot in the dick wouldn’t be humiliating enough, SoKoperator has to finesse it and shoot sideways to the bad guy.

4:19 – Hold on to that tactical bucket hat… shit is about to get REAL.

4:31 – Dynamic rifle snatches in the mix!

4:35 – The old chair attack maneuver foiled again

4:54 – If you didn’t already figure it out… when going prone it is absolutely imperative to spread your legs as far apart as possible to achieve maximum accuracy.

5:03 – If your partner can’t see the threat, push him down to the ground (hoping he figures out what’s up) and engage the target yourself.

In the next few clips we learn that if you and your partner are shooting, one of you arbitrarily needs to be in an awkward position.

6:08 – I surrend……… HA NO I DON’T. I KILL YOU!

Fancy pants spins and behind the back shooting follows… so much win.

6:49 – Smoke grenades and various soft handed homoerotic South Korean distractions thrown into the mix.  Yes that was a double ass pat at 7:13.


7:44 – And from behind the tactical Hyundai minivan, two operators were about to operate.

7:58 – Great way to ruin a North Korean kid’s party.  Shoot the piñata last.

9:20 – The start of tactical Hyundai minivan operations.

10:02 – For style points, make sure to alternate between your handgun and rifle for no reason at all.

11:08 – WAT?  An HK jamming?  Blame the ammo, and move on with your life.

11:34 – I’m not entirely sure why he’s slide locking every time… I’m assuming it’s a Korean operator hipster thing I probably wouldn’t understand.

12:51 – A lot of one handed weapon manipulations.  SoKoperator is NICE at these, not that I’m surprised.

13:46 – Oh damn they even have the water torture test in South Korea!  Flawless my dude.

South-Korea-SWAT-Operator-TrainingAfter a Valentines week break I’m back at the blogging thing again… Hope you guys learned something today, which you can apply to your own operations.

Welcome back! I now feel complete again.

Damn… Those dudes are fast. Yeah, a few goofy drills in there but seems solid nonetheless. I think for full effect they need some camera men down range. Buck Yeager would like to know what this looks like from Kim Jong Waldo’s viewpoint.

All these training vids look the same these days

Doesn’t really look that bad to me…most of it seemed pretty solid, although I guess it’s hard to judge performance without seeing the paper.

Context: I am a tier -3 DEVGRUCOM non-permissive-environment operations technician specialist.

Looked pretty good to me. The hats are dumb and the water drill seemed silly, but I have no doubts they were serious professionals. They could definitely shoot fast.

Anyone else notice that matey does moves into his SCAN phase at 12:17 with an empty firearm… hmmm.

Johnny English February 17, 2014 at 05:15 pm

Ok, so I can’t type. I meant to say. Did anyone else notice how matey moves into his ‘Scan’ phase at 12:17 with an empty firearm?

Maybe I’m not Operator enough to do that, so I’d have topped off first!

GameChanger February 18, 2014 at 10:13 pm

I think they did a couple of those at the beginning too after dropping the mag and not replacing it lol

Robert Pavelea February 17, 2014 at 07:20 pm

Are you seriously making fun of this? The Koreans are said to be on the highest level of professionalism. You should see their martial arts training.

I dunno… I get where Robert is coming from. If I was a real world SWAT operator I would want guys who take themselves this seriously by my side as a leapt from my Hyundai. It sucks when they grade your Computational Methods 201 tests, thought.

Also, when is MILcentric coming back?! I wanna sneer at more jackets that cost more than my car!

John February 18, 2014 at 09:02 pm

Gangnam Dynamics.

GameChanger February 18, 2014 at 10:16 pm

Was the guy with the MP5 putting it on safe between positions in the standing, kneeling, sitting, laying down drill, or was that just a really loud trigger reset?

ShooterJobs February 20, 2014 at 01:45 am

Looks pretty legit. Seem to be real men who carry firearms for a living not type on a keyboard.

SuckingHeadWound February 21, 2014 at 07:32 pm

These dudes are bad motorscooters. I would definitely not want to mess with them. I WOULD like to be able to breeze through $1000 worth of ammo every time I go to the range like these guys, though.
