Training Ground. I am short one key. Where is it? Or am I just not gonna get

To get the 8th key, you must have the Silver Gauntlets (from the Spirit 
Temple as a child). Go to the room with the Wolfos. Go to the gray block. 
Grab it (since you now have the Gauntlets) and push it until it falls down. 
Go into the door revealed.

Don't use it. Seriously, it will break after you use it 3-4 times. You cannot 
stop it. But an alternative is to get the Biggoron's Sword. It is just like 
the Giant's Knife, but it DOES NOT BREAK! Look in the Hard to Find Items 
Section for it.

First, you need to get the bombs from Dodongo Cavern. After that, instead of

the boulders that are blocking the way. When you reach the top, you can blow
up the rock there to reveal a pit (only containing a cow and some rupees).

start falling. Make sure to equip your Hylian Shield now. Whenever your 
shadow seems to get bigger, just hold the shield until all the rocks are done 
hitting you. Keep going north until it stops falling.

At the ivy, just Z-Target the Skullwalltulas and fire the Slingshot at them.
Climb up until you reach the top (there is the owl there so you can't miss 
it). Bomb the odd looking wall that is west of the owl. Go into the revealed
