Philippines keep promoting their stunners internationally with today’s story about TV personality and muaythai practitioner Kylie Padilla.
Muay Thai is a beautiful sport, it is like a dance. Taking the brutality away, watching those of the top level, what do we see: perfect footwork and coordination, body balance and an absolutely relaxed performance.
However this story tells about the beautiful girls involved in the Art of Eight Limbs. We have previously posted about Perth eminent Christine Hallauer, Filipino-Australian model, the ONE FC MMA Ring Girl.
Today’s post is about Queensland’s Kylie Padilla, Australian-Filipino actress, the daughter of Filipino action star Robin Padilla. She is a Muay Thai practitioner.
Padilla grew up on the Gold Coast with her mother. At the age of 14 she was sent to Philippines.
She then ventured to Thailand, staying in the boarding house for three months as well as learning the art of Muay Thai in the gym across the road.
Padilla learned punches and kicks attacking drills, alongside obtaining the knowledge of traditional Wai Khru.
She has then returned to Manila where she had her debut bout coming out victorious.
As an actress, Kylie Padilla appeared in musical variety shows as well as TV-series genres like comedy, drama, fantasy and horror.
Kylie Padilla could have been the Philippine version of Malaysian action star Michelle Yeoh. However the action films are not as popular and profitable as adult dramas.
“The trend favors sexy movies. I’m sorry, I can’t do that,” Padilla says.
