This can easily be earned against the Black Knight on the first level (Plains). As soon as the fight starts just start spamming the attack. He never even got close enough to attack me and he went down really easily. If he begins his jump and down attack, just dodge and get far enough away to continue spamming the Ground Spark. EDIT: Rather than spamming, you should just be waiting till the previous attack connects to attack again. Technically, only one Ground Spark can be on screen at a time.

Don't worry about having full health when you reach the boss as there is a healing item hidden right at the checkpoint right before the boss to refill your health.

You will need to purchase the Ground Spark technique from the Armor Outpost for 6000 Gold. You reach the Armor Outpost after defeating Plague Knight or Mole Knight. EDIT: Defeating Treasure Knight also opens up a path to Armor Outpost so any of those 3 will accomplish the task.
