I was told the brakes are used for going faster, not slowing down.

Both brakes definately will stop you quicker than front or rear alone. The disadvantage of a hard stop on a front tire is the excessive ammount of nose dive. With that much downward force being applied on the front your steering sensitivity is multiplied becuase whatever direction the wheel goes, it's going to go harder when braking. The disadvantage of using only the brake is in 2 parts. On the one hand you have the lack of power which increases the effective stopping distance. However if you apply enough pressure to lock up the rear wheel you lose control from the rear and are subject to swerving which can get nasty if not controlled.

Imagine a 100lb block in front of you. You are the bike and the block is your brake. You have 2 choices, you can either pull it or push it. When you push the block you are exerting both forward and downward pressure; this is your front brake. When you pull the block you are being dragged by the block and feel an upward force pulling you back as you pull the block; this is your rear brake. That is how using both brakes can help relieve your nose diving and increase your handling and manueverability under hard braking.

Downshifting is NOT a good idea like Racer X said because you are prone to wheel hop which can cause you to lose control even more. I've had my share of wheel hop under hard braking and it's not all that fun. I also have to agree that the best thing to do in an emergency situation is to avoid putting yourself in one. Always be a defensive rider.
