This is my first attempt at a Snap explanation. I plan to redo it as my camera ran out of disc space and the wind was blowing hard in the microphone

Well damn Bradley that's a great start. Needs a bit more structure ( you repeat yourself and struggle a bit to reach the point at some times) but that's what looking at this and jotting down some notes for next time will do for you. Don't really seem to need much specific input beyond that, and anyway I would like to actually be able to listen to everything you say before I say anything more ;-)
The main concept is really clear I think, and you're real close to all-you-need-to-know-about-snap-in-five-minutes DG heaven :-P
An idea (if you got the time and could be bothered) would be to mix in some slo-mo shots filmed from above (like JR's earlier posts), with your comments. Maybe some slow shots where you just focused on perfect form, more than distance? No fancy editing needed just a voiceover would do, to really hammer your point home.

Nice detail on the camera. Even on Regular youtube resolution the picture was really good.

Why not show a toss with a hammer to illustrate the point of the similarity to throwing the inside, close to the chest, edge of the disc at the right pec position? And using words to that effect. Just a thought.
Flat shots need running on the center line of the tee and planting each step on the center line. Anhyzer needs running from rear right to front left with the plant step hitting the ground to the left of the line you're running on. Hyzer is the mirror of that.

I can FINALLY see vidoe again. Get your other hand off the disc.....your follow through is almost as bad as mine.
That's a great camera you are using

Brad, you are a great teacher. I love your analogy to the grenade with a handle, and your point about the weight being on the other side of the grip realy made me think of throwing in a way I never have before. Working on snap is probably beyond my skills at this point, but I feel I understand things a lot better now than I ever did before.

On your reach back you are holding the disc with two hands. I think it would help to get your off hand out of there. It'll help you to pull more "down the line" and maybe help your wide shoulders rotate better to make the follow through easier for you. What you are teaching about SNAP is great keep it up.

Brad takes his left hand off the disc when he should.

I am working on that in fact.

I am trying to get my right shoulder to work "under" and through more. The result is a more "down the line" with less tendency to torque over when I really lean on it. It makes my hips work differently too and my finish it less "spinning".

i see what Tolland is getting at, you have more shoulder versatility when you do not have that left hand on the disc at all.

good thing to work on.

I like the "hammer" explaination, it's a great way to focus on wrist extension. Also, it's helped my aim, just by mentally telling myself "I want THIS part of the disc rotated THERE" at release, if that makes any sense.

Is there a second part to the video? I've seen all the other videos on the playlist, I was just wondering if there was a "part 2", Bradly sort of cuts himself off at the end of the video.
I would like your X-Wasps, please.

That makes perfect sense. You got it.

What got cut off was the discussion of throwing the "head of the hammer" above and below your plane. You can make some wicked nose down shots both hyser and anhyser.

Take two will replace take one. It has been raining none stop for almost two weeks. I may have to move it inside. I liked filming at the field.
