Definitely blip.
As all of the above comments mention there will come a time when larger CC bikes are available to you but not necessarily those with slipper clutches and mastering rev matching by blipping the throttle is a skill that may save you from a minor or major off.

Ninja 250 loose traction LOL!!! :lol:

Happened to me plenty on the racetrack with my 250 prod until I learned to blip.

Just stop using the clutch anytime after 2nd... That'll teach you everything you need to know...
