Posted:1.Patience is a VIRTUE

2.Practice more

3.Don't give up.In time you will get it.

4.Everything you know how to do learn in both directions.This is a must.Moves like TTN may seem silly to learn in both directions but trust me will give you more versatility.

5.Wait til you start trying to transition btb smoothly.

6.Be prepared to hurt yourself trying to learn some transitions.

7.As Dom put it "Speed is crap,style is everything."

Posted:What kind of transitions? Forwards to backwards? Same direction to opposite direction?

As poiaholic22 says, the most important thing is knowing every move forwards and backwards, and to be able to do them slowly and smoothly so you can see what's going on and where any problems are.
