7 QUICK QUESTIONS
WITH ALAIN MOUSSI
Who’s your favorite MMA fighter? Georges St-Pierre. He’s such an intelligent fighter and so skilled. Who’s your favorite martial arts actor, living or dead? That’s tough. I’d say -ackie Chan for the reasons I already mentioned. What’s your favorite martial arts movie — that you’re not in? (laughs) Another tough question! So many come to mind. I’ll go back to when I was a kid and give you my top three: Rumble in the Bronx, the original Kickboxer and Enter the Dragon. What’s your favorite martial arts move for self- defense? To stop something before it starts? Biting. (laughs) I’d say the front kick because it’s quick and powerful and you don’t see it coming. And you can hit different targets with it. And it comes out without even thinking about it. What’s your favorite form of cross-training? Functional circuit training. I also like swimming because it makes you more efficient with oxygen usage. What’s your favorite martial art to practice? B--. It’s actually hard to pick. I said B--, but I do kickboxing all the time. (laughs) One thing that’s appealing about B-- is you can roll hard and not get hurt as long as you do it with the right person. You can go all- out and not leave with a black eye. In contrast, with kickboxing, if you spar, somebody’s going to get hit. What’s your favorite martial arts magazine? Black Belt magazine, my friend!
