Not too bad. Jumping and landing stance on the clean was very good. Foot movement was excellent. The jerk was well above average in many respects - good dip and drive, good speed, good positioning.

You exhibit an early arm bend, in fact I predicted you'd do that just by the way you addressed the bar before it even left the ground.

Here is the top of your second pull:

Not enough extension and you're already bending the hell out your elbows. Knees are not extended, hips are not extended. Stand tall and jump the bar up with your lower body, not your arms. The bar should hang from the shoulders like it was on ropes.

You need to keep the bar closer during the first pull. It was 2-3" too far out in front.

You power-cleaned this, which is okay but you should consider following that up with a full front squat after you rack the bar. That will help teach you to not power clean everything.

Keep it up! Thank you for posting a side AND a front view. A quarter-angle is also a good choice, especially if you want to upload only one video.
