if you can find old issues (this year) of dirtrag magazine, they have a series of skills instruction, from wheelies to how to to drops to other things you need for riding strange terrain. october issue had skill #8, sep, skill #7, etc.
also...just go out and play. most of the techniques you need are about weight distribution. cycling on the road is about hammering. cycling off road is dancing with the earth. you gotta be up, out of your saddle, and moving. so next time you ride, stay out of the saddle, move around and see where balance points are.
and most importantly...have fun. (yeah, that sounds sarcastic, and is, sort of, but i'm also being serious. have fun.)
