I guess he's referring that when you're braking your front without the back...obviously the rear tire will still be turning a bit stronger/faster than the front tire, thus, the skid. It usually happens when you're on a lean. Not much if you are riding VERY perpendicular to the road. Just look at the guys doing doughnuts with bikes. Hard front brake and a liitle lean...and it goes around

I use both brakes all the time regardless of speed. I may look like a twat(by braking both when slowing from 10kph to zero)to others...but it's the habit that counts.
