A Silat trainer from West Nusa Tenggara, Mardiansyah, familiarly known as Coach Dega, had high expectations for Nurhamdi. He hoped that Nurhamdi could join the Student Sports Week (POMNAS). “There is no fixed composition who will join POMNAS as Pencak Silat athletes, but the records of an athlete should be considered,” he said.

Furthermore, he also mentioned that the more athletes will have chances to compete in prestigious events, the more experience they will achieve. It can be their mental preparation to face a national championship that is more prestigious. “New athletes have to improve (their ability). Especially in 2028, West Nusa Tenggara will host the National Sports Week,” he said.

Eko Sutrisno, his Tapak Suci coach, appreciated his students. He admitted that Nuhamdi Said has good potency and has achieved several championships, both local and national competitions. “This year, he has won several championships as UMMAT Student,” he ended.
