Studied Judo, Karate, Boxing, Wrestling, Aikido, and now Tae Kwon Do and Hapkido to varying degrees. All take time; there is no substitute for experience. It comes slowly, at least for me, so do not get frustrated and be sure to practice the technique. Lots of time it all goes out the window when sparring but they really work when performed appropriately. It also helps me to work within my physical limits; no roundhouse kicks to the head here (unless you are about 5' tall) or wrestling with 300lbers. Good luck.
