Complete the Vader Duel with a Jedi Master rating, alone or with a friend.

If you get the multipliers and the blocks/ parries right, you can get the achievement right.

The yellow attack time means great, and the green is for perfect. You will have more time if you react quicker. To block, move your hand into position quickly, swing your arm in the opposite direction for parrying and to evade, you need to jump or use the side-side in quick succession.

You will bag more times if you do three moves in a row. For example, if you have blocked twice, then block again to get the extra points.

By chaining Block, Parry and Evade in any sequence can also get you extra points. Notice that you can skip the Clash time if you get a high attack time. You can do that by Parrying combos as much as you can.

How to get this Achievement
You should start a duel with the first character as it will get much easier this way. Block the attacks until you fill your time bar.

Mastering the Juyo Form (20)
Complete any Duel in less than 3 minutes, alone or with a friend.

How to get this Achievement
It gets easier when you learn to time the blocks and parry; you can wrap up the first duel well under two minutes. If you use only blocks, it is still doable in the given time window.
