Another way is to lift the throttle and shift while using the clutch. With practice you can do this very quickly. $Easier$ on the driveline. Safer too. Just like normal upshifting, but done very very quickly. Probably the best techinque. Takes lots of practice. You are drag racing with all that implies.
The other school of thought is that just keep the pedal on the metal and "rip" the shifter WHILE using the clutch. Problem is again if you miss the shift the mill will go against the governor if you have one. If you don't, $ouch$ again. Abusive on the entire driveline. Not recommended.
Bottom line: If you want to go fast, you can't be afraid to break it.
The last way to shift is to simply ram the shifter thru while standing on the gas without using the clutch. NOT RECOMMENDED AT ALL! Some drag manuals can be shifted this way, but all that energy has to go somewhere, usually dumped into the slicks that break traction. Ouch. Your choice. How $rich$ are you? Gots a good scattershield? Ever see a clutch let go? AUUGHHHH!
Like nitrorustler41 said....dog-ring trannies are the hot ticket for super-fast powershifts. BUT - they are not much fun to drive on the street. I put up with it, but most folks wouldn't.
