We are starting with basic sword training and hand combat. Nick was figuring out if my wrists are flexible so I can fight with both hands and is happy with the result. From Monday, we dive straight into training as this is primarily an action film.”
Further, she added, “But as we go along, it will build my stamina. I am sure I will be able to go on for three-four hours soon. Nick admits that for a woman to convincingly bash up people is challenging but speed always beats strength, that’s the only rule that applies to warfare and the only way to make a woman look powerful convincingly.”
