    This can be done in Practice Mode. Pause the game and press cn_LB or cn_RB twice to reach Practice Options. Set Instinct Meter to Infinite.

    Within the game, activate Instinct with HP+HK (default: cn_RB+cn_RT). cn_downcn_downrightcn_right+cn_Y to use Whirl and throw tornadoes, it doesn't matter if the CPU blocks it. Once you've counted five, do a super jump with cn_downcn_up, cn_downcn_upleft, or cn_downcn_upright. A hand should push him into the air for the super jump. It's any five jumps, not any specific direction.

    Once you've done five of each, the achievement pops immediately.

    Yummy BaklavaI don't know what I did, but apparently it worked because I got the achievement.

    Thanks, I guess? :/

    The other solution wasn't working for me, as pressing down-up in instinct mode wasn't doing a super jump. In frustration, I just started wiggling the left thumbstick up and down as fast as I could and low and behold, he started super jumping!

    You don't need to place a sand trap on the ground or anything. Just go to practice mode as he mentioned and set instinct mode to infinite, then do your 5 tornadows (D, DF, F + Y), then either use both thumbs to tap Down/Up on the D-pad really fast, or just wiggle the left thumbstick up and down really quickly, and you'll get your 5 super jumps and the achievement.
