  You are getting bad advice.

The brace you are doing is the brace that matches the C to layback roll that Eric Jackson teaches (see his video). A brace that matches a C-to-C roll, the traditional "high brace" (shown in the video posted) does have potential shoulder problems if you extend the paddle. That is not true if you do a lay back hip snap since there is very little pressure on the paddle. However, since you apparently do a sweep roll you should match your brace to your roll. So learn to do a sweep (or sculling) brace in the high brace position, or learn to do a C to layback roll.
