“Jane the Virgin” star Gina Rodriguez is currently in Thailand mastering the combat sport Muay Thai.

“I’m off to Thailand to train at a Muay Thai training camp. It’s for Jane. There’s a transformation that happens in Jane’s life, so I’m going to go prepare for it,” she earlier told Access Hollywood.

But while she did learn Muay Thai for her character Jane Gloriana Villanueva, Rodriguez said there are some things she took home for herself during the course of the training.

She posted a photo of her training on her Instagram page. Rodriguez said that life will definitely throw a lot of curveballs to knock one down, but what’s important is that she always rises up and tries again.

In Season 3, Jane was dealt with a hard blow after she almost lost her new husband Michael Cordero (Brett Dier) after he was shot by his former partner. Thankfully, he survived the shooting.

Michael got well enough to even have sex with Jane. Rodriguez said she was glad the show’s writers decided it was time for her character to lose her virginity, because at least now they can focus on her other pursuits. At the same time, she appreciated how they made her lose her virginity to her husband, which is something that Jane committed to do.

“It’s really nice opening it up to other storylines. The show isn’t about her virginity. The show is about this girl going through life, and that just happens to be a really fun aspect of what made it interesting and a little different, and it made her holding on to her convictions such a powerful thing as a woman on television,” she told Yahoo! Style.

“Jane the Virgin” Season 3 airs every Monday at 9 p.m. EST on The CW.
