After earning this achievement, try going for 10 matches to earn:

From the main menu select:
Single Player
Change the difficulty to your choosing, the easiest being Beginner, from the menu cn_Y and then choose Maya and win 1 match

If your having trouble, it is most likely that the AI is at Beginner (if not try that!) As such the following will be tips towards the Beginner AI.

Maya: One of Maya's special characteristics is her daggers. She has moves which she can throw the daggers, at which point they will fall to the ground. To pick them up go to where the dagger is and press cn_LB.

Combo Breakers: If the AI has captured you in a combo, try doing a High combo breaker (cn_RSu or cn_RB + cn_RT). The AI will usually go for High attacks.

Combos: Aerial attacks hit a good percentage of times, so try using these to start your combos. Try keeping your combos up until your bar, which represents your Knockdown Value Meter, is almost full and then make sure to end your combos (a list of Combo Enders is available in game under Command List). Use your Shadow Moves as well since they don't have Knockdown Value.

Throws: While throws don't do much damage, they are unblockable, so if an AI is blocking to much, get through it. It is also useful to guarantee a hit when they have low health.

Instinct: Upon activating Instinct, your KV Meter will empty, so use this to extend your combos. When activated, you can spam cn_down cn_downright cn_right cn_X / cn_Y since the daggers will return to you.
Possession Rite: Upon activation Maya’s daggers, Temperance and Vengeance, immediately return to her hands, regardless of where they are on the screen. Each dagger thrown will then return to Maya after it lands on the ground.
