“I consider Samir Berardo from Muidokan our “Brazilian Karate Nerd”. Especially when it comes to old-style Okinawan karate. Profound scholar, he will revolutionize the bunkai concept of karate styles from the ancient Shurite lineage. My basic background is modern Shotokan with extension in Asai Ryu Karate, but I am open to everything that can improve my karate techniques and understanding. Samir will become a major worldwide reference.” (4th Dan, ASAI Brasil president)
