Try practicing it with quarter notes on the hat instead of eights untill the doted eighth kick becomes comfortable then go to eighths on the hat then go to the open hat on one. just build the beat a little at a time. thats how I have taught it to students over the years. once you get it fluently you can have big fun with variations of it.
