    A guard burst is basically breaking your opponents guard, giving you a free hit. As you hit the opponent while they guard, it will start to glow yellow around their health, and eventually red. Keep hitting them while they are guarding, and it will break their guard, which is a guard burst. Repeat that 30 times. You might want to get a friend for player battle and just grind it out, that's the easiest way.

    Adding upon MeesterBjangles solution I used Asteroth against "Ozanius" (C5)

    I spammed the diagonal back x, y move where he spins creating a low strike followed by a powerful overhead strike.

    He blocked most attacks and in each battle I managed at least 2 guard bursts, in some attempts I got one every round.

    An easy offline solution to this achievement is to go into Quick Battle and use the following search criteria:

    Area: Others
    Opponent Strength: Intermediate

    You are looking for a C5 opponent called Ozanius who has the title Heavy infantry.
    Personally i used Natsu for this fight but I imagine any fast character will do. When the fight starts (if using Natsu) press right, right and then delay pressing Y for half a second and you should see Ozanius lift his sword to block, as this happens hit Y and he will block. With a bit of luck you should average 1 guard burst every round. Good luck!
