On The Phone With Alain Moussi Martial Artist, Stuntman, Actor
Hollywood's most in-demand stuntman Alain Moussi makes his unbelievable transition to lead actor in reprising the iconic character "Kurt Stone" in KICKBOXER: VENGEANCE, the legendary role made famous by Jean-Claude Van Damme in the original KICKBOXER. Known for his renowned stunt double work for A-list stars including Tom Hardy (SUICIDE SQUAD), Hugh Jackman (X-MEN: APOCALYPSE) & Henry Cavill (IMMORTALS).
Now in theaters as the first of three installments in revamping the classic film with a new trilogy, KICKBOXER: VENGANCE tells the action packed story of 'Kurt Stone' (Alain), who is seeking revenge for the murder of his brother by the ruthless Tong Po during a brutal, no-holds-barred combat tournament in Thailand. Devoting himself to a life of training with a master in multiple martial arts styles, 'Kurt's' quest for redemption and revenge leads him on a path to not only right the wrong done to his brother, but to also restore respect and honor to their family name.
Known for his jaw-dropping high-kicks, killer precision and natural charm, Alain has been fighting his way through the entertainment industry where he has quickly risen as the quintessential stuntman and fight choreographer. With over 25 years of experience in martial arts and 30+ films to his credits, Alain has become the go-to expert to choreograph Hollywood's blockbuster action fight scenes.
Born in Africa, Alain and his family spent the first two years of his life between Libreville, and the Ivory Coast before moving to Ottawa, Canada. Growing up, Alain was very active with sports and discovered Jiu-Jitsu at the age of 7, but it wasn't until he discovered the classic film BLOODSPORT starring Jean-Claude Van Damme that his passion was realized. After that, Alain made it his life goal to be able to do what Jean-Clade did in the movies and become a famed martial artist, and now he is reprising a role played by the very person who he so idolized. At the age of 23, Alain opened his own thriving martial arts school, NX Martial Arts and Fitness, specializing in combat Jiu-Jitsu and kickboxing, which will soon be celebrating their 15 years since opening.
When Alain is not acting, choreographing fights, falling out of buildings, or running his martial arts school, he enjoys to spend time with his wife Janie and daughter Annabelle at their home in Canada.
