Ok so after scouting countless threads, posts and forums and youtube i was still a little confused on how to get just impacts.

To perform a Just impact you must press guard AND forward / back at the same time! If done correctly a red wave of sorts will be given off and the word *Just impact* will appear on the top of the screen just under your character.

NOTE: People have said while pushing back you can't do Just Impacts, though i seemed to. Forward seems the easier way

Now theres many ways to do this, after over 35 hours of gameplay i had only pulled it off 4 times out of 20 by accident. So i created a character (doesnt matter what style, i used yun-seong) and gave him enough skill points to equip the master impact ability and possibly impact heal as well. The reason is Master impact will make ALL impacts performed Just impacts, but you had to do it in a shorter time frame. Impact heal was just there cause youll be guarding alot so it doesnt hurt to have something that slighlty recovers your hp to make the rounds last longer.

I gave yun-seong the dragon sword for a weapon with the skills:
Master impact (required)
Impact heal (very useful)
Auto counter c (personal)
Soul gauge damage c (personal)

I gave him this set up:
Hero's band
Oval glasses
Dark knights cloak
Warlords Pauldrons
Aculeus Suit
Guardians Breastplate
Jeweled Gauntlets
Ninja Hakama
Shinobi tabi
Noble boots
In that exact order, now you dont have to give him the dark knights cloak but it enabled me to give him the ability Soul gauge damage c...just cause i can lol

Now i boosted this on Tower of the lost souls floor 1, as it is easier to anticipate their attacks. Just try your best and if anything spam forward or back with guard. Took me about half hour with a lots of luck involved. Good luck and keep at it!

EDIT: It might be advisable to use DarthSonny's location as where to obtain this achievement as well, just incase you have trouble with mine :)

EDIT:Another location people have had alot of luck in is the 3rd stage of Yun-Seong's Story Mode. Kamikirimusi swings fairly slow and is pretty easy to anticipate...and once she finishes you off, just hit retry and go again.Credit to Kez001
