    There will be three skills that you'll need to be able to pop this achievement:

    Staggering Strike
    One-handed Mastery
    Ground Execution

    Once you have all three skills unlocked, continue to stagger strike until the enemy has fallen to the ground, hold cn_X and Arno will execute a ground execution.

    VarrickI would also suggest using a low level weapon so that the enemy is not killed with the first hit. If you are using the Staggering Strike method it's easier if you try against a sword fighter otherwise you'll just end up rolling around the enemy.

    For this one, first you must finish secuence 9 completely. Then make sure you bought the skills One-Handed Weapon Master, Staggering Strike and Ground Execution. Then look for an enemy, block one of his hits, leave A pushed to destabilize him and then push X to make the execution. In the video I speak in Spanish, but I say the same that is written in English in the descryption.

    RogerculesXBest solution! It worked perfectly on my first attempt!

    You do NOT need ANY of the weapon master skills to get this achievement, as I got it without having any of them.

    The easiest way to get it is to use the Staggering Strike and Ground Execution skills. Use Staggering Strike (hold A without moving the stick) on an enemy until they're knocked to the ground, and then perform a Ground Execution (hold X) while they're on the ground.

    And most importantly, I've found that using a Heavy weapon seems to work best for performing a Ground Execution for this achievement, as it uses an overhead chop finisher. I've performed Ground Executions many times with One-handed and Long weapons and it just doesn't seem to register with them for the achievement. (possibly a glitch?)

    Jamiereloaded23Great solution, I've been trying this for ages with a one handed weapon and it wouldn't work, i switched to the heavy axe, and got it 1st time. +1 from me.

    aLifeGam3rThumbs up from me. Didn't have enough skill points to buy any of the masteries as other solutions recommend. But already had bought Staggering Strike and Ground Execution. Always had a single handed weapon equiped. After switching to a 5-white-star heavy weapon and performing one ground execution. The achievement popped after some seconds.
    I however had to start a fight, block an enemy attack by pressing cn_B if his bar is yellow. Then hold cn_A to perform staggering strike. The enemy will fall to the ground and now just hold cn_X to do a ground execution.
    If I didn't block an attack first the enemy wouldn't fall to the ground as your solution states.
