    The best way I think to do this is use Voldo in quick battle on a E ranked character that has a low likelihood of attacking. The fighter cards show the attack type rating, choose an enemy with one that is far left.

    Using default controls press LB to use Voldo's grab that spins the enemy and hits 6 times.

    Doing this for 3 rounds gives you 90 hits per match. Much easier than building a soul gauge to use Elysium or Yoshimitsu's critical finish.

    Wanderer128Just wanted to add to your solution.
    For my opponent, I selected:
    E5 - Tamajockey - "Chicken" - Pyrrha - Japan

    Per rematch, I averaged a time of 1:30-1:45 per 90 hits (from rematch to rematch)
    This yields approximately 40 Matches/Hour = 3600 Hits/Hour
    Sometimes the opponent would be turned and I'd initiate the wrong grapple, resulting in a loss of hits, so it is probably best to assume around 3450 Hits/Hour to estimate how long it'll take before you earn the achievement.

    I mained Astaroth, and wasn't expecting to have as many hits as I did, I was Level 56 or so and had finished the online and cleared about 210/240 Quick Battles.
    I wanted to bust this out and it only took me an hour to finish this. It turned out I was at around 16,500 or so hits.
    Unfortunately, for those unaware, you can see your distance traveled statistic, but not your hits landed.

    I'd advise for this achievement to be on your mind last, by the time that you get done with your 100 online fights, 100 males and females, you should have it, if not then you will most definitely get this during Quick Battles as you go for the Sudden Temptation achievement.

    The main thing to focus on is to simply attack as much as possible, choose people who have really easy combos to do and people who have attacks that hit multiple times at once such as Xiba and Maxi.

    For the most part just focus on everything else first and you should get this achievement no problem. Please leave comments if I can improve this in anyway and please explain for any downvotes.

    Scruffy McGuffyI agree with not worrying about getting this. For me, it came after about 23 hours when I was level 49 I think, and I hadn't given this any consideration and I was mostly using slower characters. If you're going for 1000 you should have this long before then, without needing to do anything specifically for it. There is no way to track it in game, unfortunately.

    I'm done with just about everything. Just need to get to rank D1 (E2 now) and finish up quick battles (currently 195wins and 55losses) and I still do not have this achievement. So it is pretty time consuming. I am guessing it will pop when nearly done getting my online rank which I am focused on doing last. I have about 30 hours in the game, so just trying to give a better time estimate for everyone. I would recommend using Elysiums Critical a lot as well as it hits for 19.

    Mr Z53^Sounds like you were using Nightmare (or Siegfried) like I am...Only takes maybe 15 hits to win a match with him, lol. Not very productive for the 20,000 strikes. I'm sure it'll be my last achievement as well =\
