Moreno, 31 years her senior, said, “She is the ultimate karate kid. It’s hard to remember that she is just five, her skills and concentration are amazing.” Varsha, a student at the Academy of Martial Arts at Alappuzha, Kerala, trains for two-and-half hours each day, The Times reported on Saturday. — PTI
