The Companions are one of the 4 factions available within the lands of Skyrim. They are more or less the equivalent of the Warrior's guild in Oblivion and obviously boasts a good selection of combat trainers.

On your first visit to Whiterun, you will be able to start and complete this quest. Odds are you witnessed npc's fighting a giant who turn out to be members of this faction and will direct you to Jorrvaskr trough a quest, the man you need to speak to is Kodlak and is usually found downstairs in his quarters.

The Companions can be found to the north up the stairs from the market in Whiterun. In case you don't find it, use your local map and look for a house named Jorrvaskr.

Complete their initation quest and this achievement will unlock.

Hey everyone, just a quick video for unlocking this achievement. For this achievement all you need to do is to complete the quest Take up Arms, or simply join the Companions. They are located in WhiteRun in the building called Jorrvarskr. Once in there, talk to Skjor and he'll tell you talk to Kodlok. Then you just beat someone into submission, sharpen a sword, deliver a shield, and find the beds! Boom, quest complete. It's really simple once you start the quest. Hope the video helps!
