Pull the clutch lever in when breaking. ( but 2 strokes don't really have much engine braking anyway.)

I can't see engine braking being bad for any dirt bike, not sure where you heard that from. It's just a natural part of how the engine operates. And, as PawPaw said, it's way more of something to be aware of on a 4 stroke than a 2 stroke.
