Looking around the net I found this kata. Does anyone know if this is an official kata of a MA?
It seemed like Judo (even though it's not on the list of Kodogan's Kata) or Jujutsu so I post it here.

This kata comes from Germany. In Germany it is a requirement of promotion for, I believe, 1st dan or above to produce your own kata for the examination panel.
It is my understanding that this is one of those such kata. Now there is nothing in Judo that says you can't invent new kata or practice self-invented kata. However, it isn't an official Kodokan kata nor would many national associations recognise it as a kata outside of, perhaps, Germany.

Interesting. The techs are all judo from what I can see.
I'd say that it's a kind of a "flow drill" mostly for competitions (kouchi gari to tomoe nage, turnovers on the ground, seoinage) and a very good one at that.
Notice the armbar from stand up at 0:53.

Style: Kodokan Judo
The best part was the jumping entry to juji gatame by uke.
