Natalie Vie

A member of the 2018 US Senior National Team, Natalie became the first Latina fencer to represent the United States at the World Championships or the Pan American Games. 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

After a hard fought season, James qualified for his first US national team and will compete in the 2019 World Championships.

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 and the 2019 US National Champion, Jake became the first US Mens epiest to win a grand prix medal since 2011 when he won back to back medals in Doha and Vancouver. A strong 2019 season catapulted him into the top 16 in the world and has brought him to his second World Championship team representing the United States. 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!
