how do you do assists without launchers?

Having a hard time figuring this out but I've seen people swap partners while attacking leading to a safe swap. for example akuma will use an unsuccesful shoryuken and as I go to punish the partner character comes out, hits me, and akuma hops off screen.

Not quite sure how to do this. The only non cross assault/launch/etc swap i've seen is the regular one that leaves you exposed. (the MP and MK one)

If you hit tag during certain moves you can swap with your partner mid move. It costs 1 meter to do so.

think of it like EX focus from sf4... same button combo, similar timing.
example: ken ex hurricane kick, tag, yoshimitsu stone hands.
