It doesn't count when I'm dodging. Has anybody the same problem?

Are you sure you're dodging as explained? There are two ways to dodge, but only one to pass that training. You must hold down block whilst making the dodge. It's possible to dodge just by tapping movement keys while target locked too, but it won't count

A dodging manoeuver only counts when you are locked on your enemy.

Yeah thats it, I got to be also in block stance. I just couldn't figure it out.

Many thanks

Well it's easy to get that confused because it's actually much easier to dodge when NOT in a block stance. You have very limited distance you can move and you move slower when in block stance and if you get lag like I do, Ezio will often linger in front of the enemy too long waving his sword in a block position if you don't time the taps right. One of my fave moves is an unblocked side step dodge followed by a stab to the unwary enemy's back. This works best if the enemy is making a lunge move.
