Yes, most people downshift through each gear, one at a time, until they reach the gear desired.

BUT, that is NOT the only way it can be done.

Tom Kipp, AMA privateer and factory rider, used to downshift through to the gear he wanted for that corner, THEN engage with the clutch to power through the corner. It worked very well for him, but I never could get the hang of doing it that way.
