After investing the necessary eight skill points to unlock this skill, the challenge for rank two is simple enough. Just punch enemies until you have dealt the necessary 250 damage. The challenge to unlock rank three and four will likely take considerably longer. Consider dismissing any companions, and continuously attempt to disarm people with the least damaging power attack available to you. However, the random nature of of your chance to disarm someone may make this take quite a bit of time.
