Biography

Alain Moussi (born 29 March 1981 of a Lebanese father and French Canadian mother) is an actor and stuntman. He plays the lead role of Kurt Sloane in the reboot of Kickboxer: Vengeance, a role that was originated by Jean-Claude Van Damme, who portrays his mentor in the film. As a stuntman, he has worked on films such as X-Men: Days of Future Past, Brick Mansions, among countless others. He has trained in jujutsu, kickboxing, Brazilian jiu-jitsu and mixed martial arts. In addition to stunts and acting, Moussi owns and operates K2 Martial Arts (formerly NX Martial Arts and Fitness) in Orleans, Ottawa, Canada.

Early life

Alain began his martial arts training in the art of jujutsu under Canadian martial arts legend John Therien and also trained in kickboxing under legendary kickboxing champion Jean-Yves Theriault. He had trained in Brazilian jiu-jitsu under Carlos Machado, eventually earning his black belt in the art.

Film career

Alain got his start as a stuntman and credits Jean Frenette, a former world martial arts champion turned stunt coordinator for films, with giving him his start. His first job was doubling Henry Cavill in the film Immortals. He has doubled for Travis Fimmel in Warcraft, Hugh Jackman in X-Men: Apocalypse, and Jai Courtney in Suicide Squad.

At the Cannes Film Festival in 2014, it was announced he would get his first lead role in a reboot of the 1989 film Kickboxer, which starred Jean-Claude Van Damme. In Kickboxer: Vengeance, Moussi played Kurt Sloane, a young martial artist who must refine his skills to avenge his brother's death. Van Damme himself replaced the departing Tony Jaa as Kurt's teacher, now named Master Durand. The film received mixed reviews but the confidence of the film resulted in two sequels, Kickboxer: Retaliation, due for release in 2017 and Kickboxer: Syndicate, which begins production in February 2017. The sequels bring Moussi back as Kurt Sloane and in addition, Moussi and longtime friend Jean-Francois LaChappelle served as fight choreographers of Retaliation.

Moussi also played the role of Charlie Nash in the web series sequel Street Fighter: Resurrection.
