Chara's summer was constantly a hard training. He trained greco-roman wrestling with his father and used those skills to eliminate an opponent during hockey game.

When he went overseas, his father accompanied him with three wishes:
Most important wish was that he will never become a fighter and he remains a hockey player. Second wish was a hat-trick and third wish was a Stanley Cup on Trencin Castle.

Try to take it through translate.google.com

Note: his father competed during 1976 on Summer Olympic in greco-roman wrestling. That fact togheter with first wish says a lot about Chara's fighting. He uses his size to gain an advantage and clearly wants not to fight (is better when he is on the ice rather than in penalty box).
So yeah, I agree he is not good fighter, but I disagree with his weak balance. He falls on ice with his opponent on purpose, not because of his weak balance.
