When you ride a bicycle at full speed and the bike stops suddenly Why do you have to push hard on the handlebars to keep from flying forward?

It's called inertia, or conservation of energy. Basically it means that an object that is moving likes to keep moving, and that an object at rest likes to remain at rest. When you're on the bike you are that moving object that would like to remain moving, so to resist that force you have to brace your arms against the bars. The bike willthen transfer that force through the for and wheel and into the ground.

How do bike rear brakes work?

The coaster brake (rear brake) on many simple bicycles uses a one-way clutch in the chain and gear assembly, and a set of plates inside the rear wheel hub. When the pedals are moving forward, they engage the chain; when they are not moving, the wheel spins freely (bike coasts). When the pedals are turned in the opposite direction, it pushes the plates against the wheel hub to slow the bike by creating friction. Coaster brakes will not work if the bicycle's chain comes off, preventing the coaster brake from engaging. There is usually a large metal bar attached to the bike frame to keep the brake from turning freely. Caliper (hand) brakes work differently, and may be used on either wheel. When the handle is squeezed on a caliper brake, two pads mounted on the frame are pushed onto the wheel rim, again creating friction to slow the bike. These two kinds of brakes are analogous to the axle brake (drum brake) and the disc brakes (rotor and pad) that are found on automobiles.

Do brakes mess up your bmx bike?

If you're talking about looks then it's all about personal taste, and IMO brakes are so darn useful that I'd keep them on no matter what. If you intend to ride in traffic they're required to make your bike legal anyhow. Structurally your bike is fine with them.

Is it safe to take brakes off bmx bike?

Depends on where you intend to ride. If you ever take your bike onto streets where there is other traffic removing brakes is a really bad idea. But if you only ride in skate/bike parks then it's not so bad. My recommendation would be to keep them on.
