    This is missable.

    After the story related training duel against Fuku-San, you'll have the choice to go in the Dojo and fighting him again. Do it to unlock the achievement.

    This event occurs the day after finding Charlie in Tattoo Parlor.

    Warning : this achievement is a little glitched. You may have to do the requierement multiple time to unlock it so save before trying. You can save after the story related duel and then try to fight him again. If it doesn't pop when the fight begins, try again.

    I3east Incarn8Totally glitched. I created a save point right after you receive the letter in Chinese from 'what ever her name is' outside your house. Ran round the side to the dojo for the sparring session with Fuku-San. No achievement :( Three re-loads and sparring sessions later and it popped.

    Zaph0dZeroFinally unlocked after saving and reloading 4 times. Unlocks, as others have said, seconds after accepting the spar. Was my last achievement to unlock.

    It is possible to get this one after you encounter Chai at YouArcade (Hong Kong ticket sequence) and lose the fight, also (besides the solution described above by WhiterValkyrie).

    After you lose the fight to Chai, Fuku-san will save you and bring you back home.

    When you wake up again, go to the dojo and do a training session with him. After that, the achievement will pop up.

    LizardKingv666This works! Create a save before entering the dojo. If the achievement does not pop after the training reload and try again. Got it that way.

    PLOP DjMessiahI tried a few times and it wouldn't unlock. Carried on with story and kept the save game, and when I went back to it a few days later it unlocked.

    Thanks for the solution, I was sure I'd missed this achievement after I didn't get it at the first opportunity!

    CyberneticHFXVery good that you have posted this solution. I was not aware of that. So there is another chance (third) to get it if it was missed or glitched on the other occasions. A second occasion is available, at the moment after talking to Ine-san (it was afternoon), and awaiting a telephone call from a travel agency on the next day. We need to be sure to save game status right before that one, or the other occasions.
