I think you would downshift in towards the middle of the braking zone. You have to scrub off some speed and lower the revs so you don't drop a gear and then mechanically overrev your engine.
As most of our driving is done on the streets, street is great place to practice heel-and-toe/blipping-the-throttle. You can do this at almost every downshifts while driving around. Just vary & match the amount of blip with how hard you're braking... Do this daily for weeks or months, and OP should feel fairly comfortable doing it on the track.
