William Chow Kata?!?

Would anyone happen to know what kata or form he is performing in the video?

Thanks,

Don't really know. Could be one he made up. This has been asked bfore somewhere, but I don't think it was ever answered conclusively.

I know that Master Chun Jr. has stated that he and his students still do that Kata. As to the name I am not sure. Certain parts of the form look like they came from some of the forms that I do.

Bill Chun called me about 3 weeks ago to talk about some of his fathers former students.
Before we hung up I asked him about the kata on my website. He told me that it was a kata created by Prof. Chow, and that it was called "Top of the Mountain".
