Always remember 'Growth follows the Knife.' This applies to all pruning.
The best thing is to take whole branches out back to the main trunk. If you just prune the smaller branches back they will re-grow with the result you have. Be bold.
If there is growth coming where you don't want it rub or cut out the shoot when it is small. Do not allow too many growths from the base or you will end up with a thicket. Tie in the branches to get a good shape and work from there.
