The tournament, also known as the Shoto Cup, includes individual and team championships in full-contact karate sparring.

Dr. Damico, who is a graduate of Idaho State University, began karate lessons in 2001 and is now a third-degree black belt. As a doctoral student at the University of Louisiana Lafayette in 2012, she was the collegiate champion at the All-South tournament in New Orleans.
