Five Man Contest 25
From main menu go to "solo contest" and choose "5 man Contest". Select Your character and hope he/she beats 5 other samurai's because it's a AI sim. Which brings us to online achievements.
Well. I've got to say this. Those achievements will spill a lot of Your sweat, blood and tears. Getting 9-Dan is very hard , Master is impossible. Online matches are AI simulation so You have no control of the match and let me just say You'll want to break Your controler and throw the game out of the window. I'm not kidding. It's SICK! But I noticed that You sould get pretty easy wins if Your character have 2 AI Traits : "Step-in moves" and "Change Stance". Try to get them while playing story mode with one of the characters. As of now on the leaderboard there are 73XX players so to get Master achievement You'll need to win 100 battles and be on the 70th place on the leaderboard. Good luck to all of You. You'll gonna need it

Late Attack 20
Counter Attacks must be more than 20% of the total attacks
You'll need to do "counter attacks". When an enemy is trying to hit You, pres + to bring them in the sword lock, then simply press Y or B to hit them. Do it on all the enemies and the trait should pop up after You beat the stage.
Stealth Attack 20
Ken attacks must be more than 40% of the total attacks
"KEN attacks". WTF is KEN Attacks ?! "Ken" attack is similar to counter attack. Lock on with an enemy. Drain theirs stamina to zero and press one of the direction ( ,,, ) + and then quickly press and hold / for instant kill. Do this a lot through story mode.
Push Back from the Edge 20
complete a level with less than 5% of HP (life)
Finish a stage with very little health and I mean VERY little.
Kumitachi Demon 20
The Success rate for Kumitachi must be more than 80% for a stage
Lock swords with every enemy through the stage by pressing (this is kumitachi).
Untouchable Light 20
finish a stage without being hit once
I recommend doing it on easy. Simply play a stage trying not to get hit and the trait is Yours.
Eye of God 20
you must unlock the 2 traits "Tusba-zemari Bashiri" and "Soku-giri"
"Tusba-zemari Bashiri" is when Your sword is locked with enemy sword, try to drag them with Left stick (don't run with them! Just keep pressing or with left stick).
"Soku-giri" is when you attack whilst your swords are locked instead of running or throwing them.
Early Attack 20
Combo attacks must be more than 40% of the total attacks
You'' get this while playing story mode. Just keep doing combos.
Shrewd Observer 20
you must unlock the 2 traits "Kaeshi" and "Avoids Soku-giri"
"Kaeshi" is tilting the thumb-stick in the opposite direction to that in which the enemy is pulling you to break the lock.
"Avoids Soku-giri" this is when an enemy who has initiated a sword lock (Kumitachi) and then attacks you (Soku-giri) and you avoid the attack.
Once again I recommend doing this on easy (otherwise If you'll die You'll have to do it all over again) and on single stage. Try to remember how enemy is cutting You (vertical or horizontal attack while Your swords being locked up) simply because he will do the same move all over again. I did it on a single enemy repeating about 20 times both "Kaeshi" and "Avoid Soku-giri" just to make sure I'll get them both at the same time.
Iron Wall 20
Defense rate must be more than 80% for a stage
Just hold button when an enemy is trying to attack You. Repeat about 50-60 times on single stage and You'll get it.
It's my first guide so please be understanding :

Thanks a lot for the guide - this game has been needing it badly. I check back periodically as I was tossing the idea of starting one around. This might give me reason to jump back into it to at least pick up the secret achievements that I'm missing
