    This can be done extremely easily in local multiplayer. Just use the weak punch with player 2 and have player 1 Parry it, repeat as required. The 3rd tier was 75 Parries.

    If you don't know how to parry I'd advise doing a few of the parrying trials to learn how. If you can do those parrying a weak punch that you control the speed of shouldn't be a problem.

    Well, I agree with Avaritia Aurorus, is a really easy achievement to do in local multiplayer.
    I just did it, it took me 1 minute and I'll tell you what I just did.

    Go to Multiplayer -> Local
    Player 1: Select Ken
    Player 2: Select Ryu

    Now make Ken walk next to Ryu and hold both controllers, player 1 with left and player 2 with right.

    Now here's the trick: Press A (low kick) with controller 2 (Ryu) at the same time you press -> with controller 1 (Ken).
    If you do it correctly, Ryu will kick and Ken will parry. This takes less than 1 second of your time. Do it 74 more times and you're done!

    Thanks for the feedback.

    Solution for 1 Player only:

    Set game difficulty level to easiest (1 Star) and start a single player game NOT using Ryu or Ken...

    ...play through Arcade Mode until you can choose Ryu or Ken as your opponent (better Ryu)...

    ...now all you have to do is create space between your character and Ryu (/Ken) to invite him throwing his Haduken (Fireballs) at you. These are the most easy attacks to parry (pressing in the direction of the FB in the moment of impact). Don't fight your oppenent! Just jump around creating space and parry as much fireballs as possible. You may win one round, but your goal is to loose the fight, so you can continue and play again...

    ...now repeat the fight until you have parried 75 times.
    been there, done that! :)

    (took me about 20min from 0x to 75x)
