Josh Griffiths is a Black Belt in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and the head instructor/founder of Clockwork Jiu Jitsu.
He began training in BJJ in New York City while studying engineering at Stevens Institute in Hoboken, NJ. 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 fulltime on instructing his students at Clockwork BJJ at 39 west 14th St. in Manahattan’s Union Square neighborhood.
