Clockwork BJJ Kids Martial Arts Program
Clockwork BJJ offers an alternative to the traditional kids karate and kids martial arts classes that are currently available in NYC.

Clockwork Jiu Jitsu’s program is fun and age specific. It will help your child reach their full potential regardless of their current skill level.

What is BJJ?
BJJ, also know as Brazilian Jiu Jitsu – is a martial art and self defense system that was derived from Japanese Jiu Jitsu and Judo. It provides maximum effectiveness while minimizing the amount of training time necessary to develop top level skills.

It was designed so that a physically smaller person can defend themselves against a larger, stronger and more aggressive one by using leverage and proper technique.


Jiu Jitsu Benefits:
- Confidence
- Increased focus
- Increased stamina
- Self discipline
- Weight loss
- Plus your child will have fun in a clean, safe, ego-free and supportive environment!


Black Belt Instructor:
- Motivates
- Encourages
- Supports your child’s growth and goals
- Provides personal attention for beginners with no experience

The Flower Sweep is an awesome closed guard attack. It allows you to sweep and off balance your opponent and often times you will land in the mounted position. There are a number of ways to defent the flower sweep but most of them lead to great submission opportunities for the guard player. Check out these videos by Josh Griffiths of Clockwork BJJ in New York City.

I made 4 videos about the spider guard. They are all related based on the different ways your opponent will defend. All 4 of the videos start with a foot on the bicep sleeve grip and a same side collar grip. This is one of the most difficult open guards to pass in BJJ. Check out all the first one here and the other 3 after the jump.
