Firstly- it's not easy. If it was, we wouldn't need dojos, would we?

Secondly- distancing is about reading and controlling your opponent. Don't get trapped into continually backing up. Learn how to put him into the position you want. You can use atemi directly, or use them to make him dodge (thusly setting him up for another technique).
