Natalie Vie

Currently ranked #4 in the US for women’s épée, Natalie says that, for her, fencing is about more than just results. It’s a journey of passion, growth, and self-discovery that’s inextricably interwoven with her pursuits in yoga and meditation. We’re excited to join her on that journey.


 

James Kaull

We asked James what drives him and he said: "My curiosity for improvement motivates me to continually strive for personal growth. There's still a tremendous amount to learn about the sport, competition, and myself. The sport of fencing has shown me how to transfer that pursuit to the parts of my life that don't involve a sword. I'm working towards the big Olympic stage and enjoying each and every hurdle in between."

James's mindset has brought him success on and off the strip. We're proud to support such a uniquely passionate and driven athlete

 

 

Jake Hoyle

A two time NCAA individual champion, Jake has just made his debut on the international circuit, where he hopes to build on his success in college. Currently ranked #1 in the United States for Mens Epee, Jake says he draws his inspiration from his family who sacrificed so much to give him the opportunity to pursue his Olympic dream. 

We are incredibly proud to welcome Jake into our family and to help support his journey! 

 


Cooper Schumacher - Team Radical

Cooper Schumacher

In 2017 Cooper was the Individual NCAA Epee champion and a member of Team USA at the world championships. After graduating from St. John’s University with a degree in marketing, Cooper decided to switch coaches as well. This change came with a period of adjustment but he says he’s gained a deeper understanding of the sport which will drive his future success. His dedication to better himself through hard work and reinvention align perfectly with Radical Fencing’s mission and ideology.
