At Clockwork Jiu Jitsu in New York City, we want to pass on the many benefits of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu (BJJ) and Submission Grappling. We offer programs that help everyone from the total beginner to the advanced student looking to take their game to the next level.
Josh Griffiths, the head instructor at Clockwork Jiu Jitsu, is known for his quality instruction, accessibility, and being able to create an ego free learning environment. Josh received a Black Belt in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu from UFC superstar Kenny Florian, and is the head instructor at Clockwork BJJ. He began training in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu while studying engineering at Stevens Institute in Hoboken, New Jersey. After a few months, he started training more regularly and watching competition footage. Jiu Jitsu quickly became an obsession and something that Josh would do almost everyday and some times twice a day. Soon after this Josh started to compete; medaling in his first 2 tournaments and taking the gold in his third (submitting all 4 of his opponents). Since then Josh has trained with some of the best in the sport and won some of the most prestigious titles in Jiu-Jitsu including the pan American championship and multiple Grappler’s Quest and Copa Atlantica championship titles. In 2007, Josh received his black belt from UFC star Kenny Florian. Currently Josh is focusing full-time on instructing his students at Clockwork BJJ.
