It seems like you are having a problem with the acceleration rather than the clutch.
The engine could be misfiring while taking off resulting in the harsh jerk. Possible causes are spark plugs and cable problems.
If your engine is carburetted, you need to check the carb accelerating pump. If it is not pumping enough gas while taking off, it would result in the jerk.
