20 years ago I was told to hit the brakes hard and to be perfect push the clutch in just as you're about to stall, so you get engine braking all the way down. In a real emergency stalling is not the worst outcome.

Had to do this a few weeks ago. In an emergency there's 0 time to try and downshift. Hit the brakes, there's time to hit the clutch, then put it in the appropriate gear.
