Default difficulty learning 2 beat kick

I'm having a hard time changing to a 2 beat kick. I've bought a Finis snorkel, but haven't used it yet. I'm thinking it might help me concentrate on my kick...any advice?

i posted this on another thread but it may help:

here is a good video by Coach Todd Erickson:

However, you can also start by doing Laser Lead Glide which is Superman Glide but with arms at your side, and kicking one side at a time to feel the kick's energy imparted to driving the opposite side/shoulder into the water. Then you can move to SG with 2BK drilling as in above video.

here is a good video discussion by Coach Mandy and Coach Stuart MacDougal on 2BK:

Interestingly, I spent about 15 minutes this afternoon working on my 2bk. I used the Perpetual Motion Freestyle in 10 Easy Lesson DVD. The last section is all about the 2BK. I did the drills as Terry was showing, and I really focused on the aspect of each drill and what I was supposed to be feeling.

Wouldn't you know it, my 2bk improved. Now its not perfect, and I will do these drills again the next time at the pool. But it gave me an excellent start to perfecting my kick.
