    prac.....do it over and over and over and over.....when i was first learning double pedal i would sit there and do straight 16ths or 32nds for as long as i could....once i went for an entire hour without stopping....that helps alot to build up streangth and to get ur feet going steadilly opposite....then after u get to where u can do straight single rolls for a long time perfectly then go on to the double stroke and all that just prac them like you would for your hands....and then try other rudiments...good luck..
