Do you have the same tire front and rear?
For practice, roll on a flat, paved surface and try stopping with just the front brake alone. Like BenLi said, shift your weight back. Eventually, you'll find that you go from very high speed to almost a dead stop with just your front brake if you shift your weight so far back the saddle is under your chest and the rear tire is buzzing between your knees which, not coincidentally is also a really good position to be in on those steep hills you've been holding your brakes down on.
