There are intermediate courses, starting with the advanced MSF course, which does include instruction and practice in using the rear brake, including controlling the bike if you do lock it up. Also there are track schools that focus on street riders and skills, and street skill classes like Lee Parks' Total Control. I'd recommend any of those.
