I've never seen anyone throw a jo in this context.

Here is a nice clip of Saito Sensei teaching jo dori. Notice that he hands the jo back to his partner, and does not throw it.

Teaching is not performing. What the OP did in the video is the way it's taught in Iwama and those guys have a pure and pristine lineage straight to the founder.
