Small Hands and Clutch question?

Don't laugh but I don't have the biggest of hands.

Went riding today and for some reason when shifting into 2nd gear (only 2nd)I must have partially lost grip on the the clutch lever and it released way too quickly after I selected 2nd and then obviously the bike really jerked forward (when it feels like your hands are ripped of the grips). No grinding or bad noises, it was in gear.

Anyway, not really an issue but I'm wondering if this causes wear or damage to the transmission, cogs, clutch etc?

And also what is actually happening when that happens? Is it the clutch grabbing or the cogs (not very mechanically minded)?
