The earliest chance to earn this achievement is during the battle tutorials in the prologue, Day 1.

Perfect timing = pressing the corresponding button for the guarding command just when an enemy is about to hit Lightning. In the prologue, the button for guarding is set to be X.

You will need to fight an enemy called "Anubys". He has two attacks - a horizontal sweep (harder to time), and a downward chop (easier to time). You may let him hit you a few times to be familiar with the hit timing. If perfect guarding is successful, the screen will show "GUARD" and Anubys will be knocked out / staggered, and the achievement will unlock immediately, as shown in the video. All credits go to its maker, Reabo.

Even if you miss the opportunity in the prologue, there is no need to worry, because it is very likely that you will obtain this achievement in future combats without even trying.
