Does anyone have a video on how to punish this or avoid it. It's annoying to fight against an I doubt the devs are going to change it. So a link would be nice

If you have a dodge attack you can beat it. except for pk and gladiator. a backwards walking light beats it as well. unless you're goki or lawbringer.

This video details it very thoroughly:

that dodge timing seems way to tricky to dodge out of its worse that 50/50 its more like 100/100 because the timing is so small that the kick will land or the toss will land and once you add any input delay then it nearly impossible to dodge, obviously its not as I've just seen but in reality in game it is nearly impossible.

It's tight but it's not impossible. You can stuff his feint to grab with a 600ms light or you can roll back if you're unsure. Much like Warden's shoulder bash it's all about predicting his pattern except that Highlander can't hard cancel the kick/grab. Most characters with a dodge attack can avoid it completely.

Here is an example I recorded of me dodging a Highlander's kick/toss feint. That clip also shows him stuffing my kick/grab with a light.
