Hello and welcome. I’m Charlie “The Spaniard” Brenneman – speaker, mentor, author and professional fighter.
Through my speaking and mentoring programs, blogs and videos, I challenge you to think differently, act differently and lead by example. I am well-equipped to help you fight the everyday challenges in your life.
Here’s a brief bio:
Following a successful high school wrestling career, I continued my academics and athletics at Lock Haven University. In my senior year, I achieved a top 12 finish at Division I Nationals and 1st Team All-Academic. After teaching Spanish for three years and winning Spike TV’s Pros vs. Joes, I made the tough decision to leave my job to pursue a master’s degree and begin my professional fighting career—“The Spaniard” was born. In 2011, I was ranked as high as #7 in the world, and in 2015, published my autobiography, Driven: My Unlikely Journey from Classroom to Cage. I currently live in PA with my beautiful wife and daughter. Oh, and our French Bulldog, Josie.
