Am I too old to perform combos? I seem to be missing unwritten rules for combos Gaming on Mac

These games (and others like it) just seem to assume the player understands the string of icons it shows for a 'combo' and go from there ... but apparently I missed the memo about the 'trick'. Lets take an example of me trying Sifu. I get to a point where it puts the game in pause, target dummy mode, to tell me about a combo to do, to avoid this bigass boss guys attack. It is "Up, Down + Y" ... looks simple enough to me. 15 minutes later, mashing those every which way I can think, it finally says "SUCCESS!" and unpauses and throws me into combat with the big guy. Who then attacks, I try the combo, failing miserably, and getting knocked on my ass, and then smashed dead before I could stand. *sigh* I really wish I knew what I'm missing here. How can pushing up, then down and mashing Y at the exact millisecond be so difficult? I mean, my controller might have some 10ms lag between pushing a button, and trying to land a stick motion of 'down' quickly after having slammed it 'up', and then pushing 'Y' the instant that 'down' registers... I dunno. Seems like I'm missing something here. I'm not entirely lethargic either. I absolutely enjoy shooters (ones without rng bullet spread nonsense) where I can flick and aim pixel perfect and nail enemies in the head with hair trigger clicks. So, I know my reflexes and speed are up. I'm also pretty good at reacting and pushing buttons fast. But a combo??? arg. -- For those games, unless you are 18 or under your reflexes are too slow.
