Yellow Monkey try to use one finger. If you don’t have hydraulic brakes try upgrading them. It’s very unsafe to only have 2 fingers on your handlebars. You’ll get used to it :)

+Emilio Segura well yes, when you increase the cadence and you begin to feel that you are not pedaling under heavy load that's the moment you start shifting. When you barely move on higher gear don't try to shift immediately, give it a moment until you go faster

lol ...pls don't ....you need to build some speed first before you start changing on higher gears - that's the bottom line

One "bad habit" I see, on the trail (and the road) is an increasing number of riders not giving an audible signal when about to overtake or pass. Whatever happened to saying "on your left"? (Or where you guys are, "on your right"?) Also although they are useless on the road (no one in a car can hear it) I do have a small bell on my mt bikes, a couple of rings while approaching a blind corner is a lot friendlier than shouting "gang way" at the top of your lungs...

But what if I have brakes that if I put one finger on them, it's impossible to fully brake because my fingers are blocking them. Is it ok to make space between them and grips so it could be possible?

I don't agree with the 2 fingers on the lever being a bad habit, if you need to brake hard one finger doesn't do it, specially doing high speed manual.
