It is more of a racing technique than a general riding technique. From 2nd gear upward, you can load a bit of pressure on the shift lever and then back off the throttle and increase the pressure. It works because of the sequential gearing used in motorcycles.
It is far more important for you to learn proper rev-matching for down shifts (in which the clutch is always used).
See the throttle blipping topic in the engine discussions section below.sec
