Last year, Anne Curtis devoted her time training for her upcoming movie titled Buy Bust. Director Erik Matti shared on his official Facebook page Anne’s video practicing the Pekiti Tirsia Kali, the only Filipino Martial Arts recognized by the Philippine Army, Marines, PNP, PSG, and other special forces units.
Anne looked back on her intense training and reposted the clip on her Instagram and wrote, “Been working long, wet and bloody nights on this film with an extremely awesome team. Can't even put into words how excited I am for all of you to see how it's all come together.”
Netizens were quick to compare the actress to Angelina Jolie and her movie character Lara Croft.
This time last year. Trained hard. Trained properly. Pekiti Tirsia Kali. 🔪 Close quarter combat training. Proper gun handling - 🔫 Learning about recoil, how not to flinch and squint with one eye while firing. Training and spending time with our brave Scout Rangers and SF. 🇵🇭 Been working long, wet and bloody nights on this film with an extremely awesome team. Can't even put into words how excited I am for all of you to see how it's all come together. @erikmatti @tuhonmickkatipunan @dyake04 @dibs_r_t #BUYBUST
