While in Okinawa , on my recent trip , I had the oppourtunity to see the Kata Jigen No Sai trained . It is done w/ the Manji Sai . I've never known this before . Anyways , I have some footage of a Manji Sai Kata , & I would like to find out , if anyone can tell me if this Kata is the Kata , Jigen No Sai .

Does this kata have an under hand flip (for lack of a better description) in it? I have a manji sai kata footage on 8mm from the late 70's.
I also have a book written by Ernest Estrada entitled, Ryukyu Classical Martial Arts: Okinawan Kobudo. 1985, 1992. In it, he lists Inoue Sensei's 8 Sai Kata. The 8th one he mentions is jigen manji-sai.
