what is tsuki uke?
Tsuki Uke... well.. what is it. Tsuki or Uke? Punch or block?
It is both. Both at the same time.
Tsuki Uke is an application of Ko Bo Ittai - attack and defense occur at the same time.
The point is not only to attack and deflect the opponents attack. Hit the opponent as you change the trajectory of his attack while manipulating his posture and disrupting his energy.

Tsuki Uke combination
This combination is like a cross and uppercut. The cross is done as Tsuki Uke giving you more leverage as opposed to just striking with a cross.
It holds an element of defence while you strike.
