A technique I learned from the Yak 52 I had was not to drag a brake, but use a series of short taps on the brake. I use that method for all but tight taxi turns and stop the turn by applying the opposite brake. A method learned from my Yak where I stopped in a turn using both brakes and ended up having to shutdown and manually center the castoring nose wheel because I was in tight quarters between hangar rows. Like they say: experience is what you get right after you needed it!😀
