When fighting with ur fists, hold the attack button (PS3:Square or 360:X(?)) for 2 or 3 seconds and then release it.

I'm having trouble getting 4 guards to stand still in front of me long enough to do it. Any advice on technique? I've been at it for at least an hour.

Edengoth, find a narrow alleyway to lead them into. Such locations are easier to find in Venice.

Thanks. I usually tried leading them out onto the docks in Venice, but they tend fall and drown. :P

Ha! It's a shame the achievement wasn't called "Swim Lessons".

The wall on San Gimignano also worked well, if you find the stairs that the guards can climb up.

Sometimes I can get them all to stand in front of me, but then I have no time to gather sand and throw it before a brute decides my face would look prettier with an axe through it.

Yeah, you have to get really lucky. Try to lure as many agiles and low ranks to the alley as possible. They are usually more timid than the other guards.

Try using the tutorial in the training grounds of the villa, it teaches you how to do the move.

are you sure i thought i had done all the trainings

Are you guys kidding? Getting this achievement took me about 30 seconds. Get some guards in Florence, run away and throw sand when they all come to you. Its not going to work if you stand in place. Run away, and when they come to you they will all be in a line, its like common sense. Oh and to get the throw sand ability you have to go to the trainer in the villa. Then hold X while unarmed and in combat.
