Cat Dances on the Wall is a sword form used to knock aside a strike and go for the legs in one sweep.[1] The movement of the form looks like a surprised cat scrambling up a wall.

In PracticeEdit

Rand al'Thor cut down a Trolloc with this form while escaping with the Horn of Valere from Padan Fain.[2] During the duel between Rand and Be'lal one of them used this form and the other used The Boar Rushed Downhill to counter.[3] Gawyn Trakand countered Sleete's use of The Viper Flicks Its Tongue with this form.[1]
