It may seem counter intuitive, but I had success learning the 2 beat kick using a pull buoy. The buoy kept me in a stable position while I practiced the rhythm by lightly tapping/flicking the water with my ankles (not real kicking). Once I mentally imprinted the timing, I ditched the buoy and practiced the 2BK as a focal point during whole stroke practice.

That said - I rarely use the 2-beat kick when I swim, but it is nice to know that it is in my toolbox if I want to use it.
