By profession, Dr. Krishna Reddy happens to be a doctor. But what is noteworthy is that he is a karate black belt holder. On Sunday, Dr. Reddy turned 70, and he made the milestone memorable by breaking 70 granite slabs with his left leg in three minutes and 20 seconds at GVR Karate Academy in Narayanguda.


He says as a doctor, he had seen many cases where people slipped into depression once they reached a certain age as they found themselves having nothing to do. And it is this attitude that Dr. Reddy wants to target. He says he wants to bring home the message that fitness is the key to good health and that senior citizens must do away with negative and depressing thoughts.


Dr. Reddy points out that life does not end at 60 as many thinks, and it is this depriving thought that has taken a toll on the health of many people. He further adds that COVID-19 has been rather hard on many who were 60 and above. The virus has created fear among people, and it is this fear that has felt many vulnerable.


The karate master says that following simple COVID protocols like wearing a mask and washing hands can help not just senior citizens but the public in general. It is the sheer psychology of fear, says Dr. Reddy.


Dr. Reddy shares that he took to karate at the age of 48 and got a black belt within a few years. He says he performed the feat to show all those wallowings that life, even at 70, can be full of energy, activity, and vitality.
