In the beta test, this floor was the scene of many PKs (Player Kills), so Asuna asks Kirito for a “Player vs. Player” dueling lesson.

Synopsis for Sword Art Online: Progressive
This is a story that dates back to before “Lightning Flash” and “The Black Swordsman” were known by those names. The day Asuna Yuuki put on the NerveGear, she was a third grade student who had never touched a game. On November 6, 2022, the world’s first VRMMORPG, Sword Art Online, is officially released. But players, still elated from connecting, are suddenly trapped inside the game when the Game Master deprives them of any chance to exit. The Game Master gives them this warning “this may be a game, but it is not something to be played with.”
If a player dies in the game, they also die in real life. Upon hearing this, panic breaks out among the players, and chaos reigns. One of these players is Asuna, but despite the fact that she is still unaware of the rules of that world, she is on her way to conquer Aincrad, the floating iron castle whose peak is too high to be seen. As the days go by in this world where death is never far away, she has a fateful encounter. And then a farewell. Although she is at the mercy of reality before her eyes, Asuna fights with all her might until someone appears before her: the cold swordsman, Kirito…
