Default Snatch critiques please

I wrote what I saw wrong at the end of the video but I would like to hear what others think.

Your back angle shifts forward a little when you start, but not by much. As for your back angle amount (seems to be a little closer to horizontal than necessary), flare your knees out. That should help your positioning.

The jump back is noticeable and might want correcting, but it doesn't seem to be causing huge trouble right now.

Avoid "sitting back" too much in the overhead squat. It didn't look necessarily problematic and your ankle flexibility looks about alright, but keep your chest from dipping too far forward.

Pretty good form, altogether, though.
