Timing
Where to look at and how to read an opponent
When to enter and how
How to handle distance and angle
How to connect with an opponents center
Your opponents attention
How to deal with different strikes and kicks
How to deal with takedowns and throwing attempts
how to deliver a good punch.

That's a good list. I may add in just 1 more and that is to be able to predict your opponent's respond from your attack.

For example, when you move your arm in circular and try to contact your opponent's arm, if he moves his arm the same direction as your arm path, those 2 arms will never meet. If you suddenly reverse the direction of your circle, you can ambush his arm. A downward parry immediate followed by an upward arm wrap can be a good example.

Is this in Taiji form solo training? I don't think so.

I don't understand the "my Doge" reference and can't rate its dorkiness, but I appreciate quite a few of Origami's postings, such as the one in this thread.
Do not make the mistake of giving up the near in order to seek the far.

Why, thank you, sir.

This is Doge.
