Is uke nagashi taught from punches as well as grabs?

...If the attack is 'high,' like mune tsuki, kata tori (like in the video) or even yokomen, the deflection as shown in the video works well...
from my previous post... we will use the movement as a deflection from attacks like 'mune tsuki' - punch to the face, kata tori (shoulder grabs), yokomen uchi... strikes to the side of the head. even left or right hook

practice hard
