In the 1970's in an interview, Hohan Soken, the inheritor of the system, described doing the kata with the hairpins as taught by his uncle and teacher, Nabe Matsumura (Bushi Matsumura's grandson). And as mentioned before, Bushi Matsumura's other student, Itosu, later broke the kusanku kata into Sho and Dai. He probably was also taught to train the kata with the jiffa.
