Everything's hard during basic; train hard, fight easy, you see. The whole point is that you are being taught to accomplish hard things so that when it comes to stabbing Terry with a cheap and nasty little knife stuck to the end of your rifle, you can do it easily.

Don't stress about it. If you start worrying about everything hard, then you'll either scare yourself and never show up or spend the entire time worrying about the PT, the assault course, the bayonet trg, the CBRN chamber...
You will have a lot of people around you who will find it just as hard. Just do some basic preparation (Learn to iron, sew, polish shoes, make beds etc), learn a little about the army (the organisation, who to salute, who to address as "sir" etc) and get fit.

I'm not really one to say, but this thread is ridiculously unnecessary. As if any part is going to be easy...

I quite enjoyed bayonet fighting in a strange sort of way!

Dont worry, try bayonet fighting between two tanks, which is phase two of your Bayonet training. Then you will understand how hard it is.

By the time you get to the bayonet they could stick a fluffy bunny in front of you and you would stab the f*cker. :)

When do you start bayonet training underwater?

The underwater knife fighting courses are a specialism.

You have to do three years in the green before being considered for this course.

Then it's a two week trip to Korea to "wok the dog".

this might be a stupid question but do all recruits do bayonet training or just infantry?

Demonstrating soldier adopts position with standard 'Aaaargh!!!'

Instructing NCO: " Now Fus. Victim why did he just scream?"

Victim " 'Cos he's afraid of the dummy."

Class, we couldn't do anything for the next 3/4 minutes, I have difficulty in taking bayonets seriously after that.
