Someone thinks the camera angles are 90 degrees off on my video(I originally did too), so here's the alternative which I think makes less sense. The pelvis/spine would be tilted heavily over the front leg, and the fist wouldn't extend closer to the target than the elbow as the shoulder and elbow would retract away from the target.

Now I at least realize that a big part of the issue is probably that I clear the front shoulder out of the way to try to move it straight. Doesn't matter what angle my arm is in relation to my shoulder, I just spin out trying to move the disc straight. I've seen SW make the point of the curved path the disc takes in diagrams but never really understood it without the discussion in this thread.
