I wonder how long she trained for the 30-second shampoo TV commercial. More importantly, if she continued her training. I highly doubt it. As far as I know, she does Plana Forma as part of her fitness routine.
I think she only trains in martial arts when the role calls for it (like what most actors/actresses do)—just like this 2011 #ThowbackThursday Palmolive TVC below:
Oh according to this article, she trained in martial arts with Kawee Seng, who previously worked with Angelina Jolie (“Salt” and “Lara Croft Tomb Raider: The Cradle of Life“) and Tony Jaa (“Ong-Bak“). Wow!
I know there are a few local actors/actresses who underwent Filipino Martial Arts training for their roles like Marian Rivera (“Amaya”) and Coco Martin (“Juan de la Cruz”). I really hope to see more.
