A focus bonus is earned when you target a player and hold off for a few seconds before you press X in order to attack them. The X button above their head will have a white circle start to form around it.

New in Assassin's Creed IV are two features that will help you:

First, there are now two levels of Focus bonus. For the focus bonus to count, that circle only needs to be half full or more. It does NOT need to be completely filled as it had to in previous games.

Secondly, you can now earn focus bonuses when you stun, and also when kills are contested. Even if you are the prey and are killed, if you attempted a stun with a half full circle, you will get credit for this.

Watch the points at the end of a kill / stun to see if the word "Focus" pops up as a bonus. That's how you'll know you've earned progress.
