Hello! Originally I wanted to have a "cool post count" of 108, or something like that (something associated with Tai Chi) but that does not seem possible here. Therefore I am editing this post to point out that users here cannot delete their own posts. I do not understand why users have the ability to edit their posts but not to delete their posts.

I don't equate being good at Tuishou with being able to use Taijiquan, though. For me only sparring can prove someone's proficiency.

There is a big difference between the badge system and this, which is that I don't care about learning things like forms as much as skills. They get a badge for being able to use the skill, not for learning sets. For example, choose a group of techniques that require Peng force and if they can use them properly in sparring they get a Peng badge.
