1. brake, then clutch in
2. move to lower gear
3. blip the throttle with your heel, while holding in the clutch (the foot is still on the brake)
4. then i release clutch and the brake. yadadada then accel out
Double clutching while rev matching saves your synchros from a bit of wear...the way you do it does not.

While the way you do it is certainly faster on the track, if you have the time during the daily commute to double clutch on the downshift...why not?
