Lie him on his back and gently stroke his toes, if he moves say "Agh" or "No", but dont take your hand off his paw, when he stops wriggling take your hand away.
Keep repeating this until he is happy to lie there then progress to holding his paw as though your gonna cut them but don't cut at this stage.
Again once you can handle his paw as you wish then try cutting the claws, by this stage he should be okay about it.
It should only take a few days at most if you release and reward at the right time.
I have never had a problem with Jake as I taught him to sit quiet after he'd only been with me a few days
