It's a simple matter of matching engine speed to the vehicle speed. It is actually easier on the vehicle when done right.
note: This is very true, but some newer cars don't like it (Toyotas are... tricky). It can be done - but I'd advise learnin' it on one you don't care about lol

Lost the throwout bearing on my ol' army jeep - drove it for almost a year by speed shiftin' and using the starter for first and reverse THAT I wouldn't recommend tryin' in any civilian car lol
