In level 6, keep running to the left until you get to an enemy that looks like a giant ogre. This is the chief guard / gatekeeper (he looks nothing like the achievement icon). At these levels your first strike may be blocked by the enemy, therefore parrying is your best friend. When you hit X, remember to hit A as quickly as possible afterwards to prevent a counter-strike. Sometimes you will need to hit X, A several times in quick succession before you land a hit. The chief guard will take six hits before he dies.

Unfortunately, my original video has since been removed from Youtube. I've managed to find another walkthrough by krackerkid5, but it starts from level 1. Level 6 starts at 8:45 and the gatekeeper appears at 9:07.
