The clean grip is one grip. If you look at some old pics of Draper doing them, he used a cross armed overhand grip. I use a grip a friend of mine showed me. I grip with an overhand grip on either side of the center knurling. With all of them, remember to keep your elbows pointing out and inside of your shoulders.
