Hey Wael, great question. Fujiru is creating a situation where you protect or even neutralize the  power of the attackers grip and seizing the advantage. It usually means finding  the right maai or space and the good angle and elevation that weaken their power…. While at the same time allowing you to relax, connect and add your own body weight . It can feel like they are being pulled slightly or can’t add their body weight well.  It should lead or cause kuzushi. Each waza is a chance to feel and study this. Soke is an absolute master at it.  

In Gassho Shodan it’s similar to Kote Gaeshi and Hiki nage in that regard . I can make a smalll video about this soon.  Cheers and I hope that helped a little .

Thanks Jonnybachi! I love this type of laboratory type thinking - the art, the sport and the self defence all helping our understanding

It took me long time to start to feel good in the mount so be patient with yourself if you are working these details and make mistakes while roling

Thanks Wael this is a tweak I added to this waza when I was trying to apply it to a guy that was almost foot taller than me. Then it stuck and I do it all the time.  Love the feed back my friend.
