Charlie trained under the tutelage of American Association of Fight Directors president, Brad Lemons in NYC.
The AAFD teaches an approach to Stage Fighting as an extension of an acting performance rather than technical movements or a theatrical martial art. They define why the fight is in the play and then find the best way to tell that story to the audience. By simplifying the techniques of stage fighting to the most essential elements, this allows actors to feel safer and more in control of the movements they perform.

Charlie currently teaches Stage Fighting at the Arts Academy at Federation University in Ballarat.
