Alain Moussi - the new "Kickboxer" (Appreciation Thread)

Recommended Posts

Alain-Moussi-and-Dave-Bautista.jpg

Born on March 29, 1981 in Libreville Gabon, Alain Moussi was raised in Canada. He began martial arts training under Canadian judo legend John Therien and then moved to kickboxer under one of the most legendary kickboxers in the late 70's and early 80's, Jean-Yves Theriault. Aside from judo and kickboxing, Alain has a black belt in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu under Carlos Machado. Alain owns and operates the K2 Martial Arts Orleans branch in Ontario.

Started as a stuntman in 2009 after being discovered by former world karate champion turned stunt coordinator Jean Frenette. His first stunt gig was doubling Henry Cavill in the film Immortals. In 2014, Alain had gotten the call for his first lead role in a film, the reboot of the 1989 Jean-Claude Van Damme classic Kickboxer. Entitled Kickboxer: Vengeance, Alain took the role of Kurt Sloane, who in this reboot, must avenge his brother's death by training with his brother's Muay Thai teacher, played by the original Kickboxer himself, JCVD. A sequel, Kickboxer: Retaliation was recently completed in which Moussi and JCVD are returning and a final installment, Kickboxer: Syndicate (according to IMDB, it is now called Kickboxer: Armageddon but have not heard of confirmation yet.) which is scheduled to shoot in February.

In between shooting, Alain still works as a stuntman, recently working on films like Suicide Squad and X-Men: Apocalypse. He also played Charlie Nash in the web series Street Fighter: Resurrection.

Here's a full interview I did with Alain to promote the release of Kickboxer: Vengeance
