In order to be able to throw sand, you must get trained by the Combat Trainer in Monteriggioni. Talk to him, choose Special Moves, and choose Unarmed Combat, it is free to learn.

To do it, you will just need to hold X when unarmed, and release.

You can use the method in this video, get into a fight, use a Smoke Bomb, and let them have it.

You have to have targeted the enemy in order to throw sand at them.

The Sand Throw is at 00:58.

You do not need to buy this move but you can practice it outside your Monteriggioni Villa.
(Lock onto target cn_LT, then Hold cn_X while unarmed)
Then just get enough guards to follow you, face them and throw sand at atleast 4 of them to get the achievement.

I fast traveled to VENICE - SAN MARCO location to find a lot of guards.
