Manual flash and high speed sync

I need some clarification on this:
I use manual flash units (Stobie130) and manual triggers (Photix StrattoII).  I have been told I can use high speed sync with a manual flash.
Here is the situation as explained to me:

On camera TTL flash in HSS and a manual flash off camera (I'm talking completely manual flash, just to be clear) set to fire optically.  I'm told the off camera manual flash will work with a High speed sync flash setup like this.

I'm wondering how a manual flash will sync with the high speed sync shutter.   

Can anyone explain this?  Maybe I'm missing something.
