pc player, i try many duel vs good Shugoki, but celtic course is unsuable as an open, even the light counter end with a shugoki light and headbutt: the only method to face shugo when i use HL is turtle and wait opportunity for GB, then start with celtic or fast change form and after try kick or Toss....any other suggestion?

You are 100% right. At the moment, it's very hard to open up good turtles, especially good Shugo since their innate hyper armor allows them to trade very well. As a Highlander, you have even less "good moves" to open him up.

At this point, it's a problem about the defensive meta and I would wait for the Devs to finally fix this ... they've been working on it for months now and it even made a quick apparition on a PTR before they yanked it back into testing.

So ya ... just wait. "Soon", you'll be a lot less punishable for throwing your heavies left and right since a parry will only lead to a light attack punish without possibility of guard breaks.
