That is very good basic info. The only thing I don't necessarily agree with is the 360 after release. It could just be a sacrifice he is making to not injure himself vs generating more leverage. I know a mini dg world champ that also does a 360 spin after release, and he also throws a regular disc quite far.
Something went wrong. Please make sure you added the video correctly. Click here to see how YouTube videos should be embedded. There could also be a technical issue that's not your fault. Click here to view the video on YouTube's site. If this link doesn't work, you did something wrong.

Here is the graphic I mentioned. In the far right, it us easy to see that you could lower the dsc to where you are throwing on plame and still have a longer effective throwing lever.

I feel somewhat confident in saying that you don't want your throwing lever attached to the left elbow. I'm not sure I understand the graphic. I think you're little guy is releasing at the wrong point.
