How to split polygon to grid with irregular cells?

I have a problem.
I am trying to form a grid from my polygons. The grid should be a special grid. Inside one polygon the cell should be for example squares but if the cell is placed on the border of two or more polygons, it should create 2 or more irregular shaped cells. Example picture is included. (Picture is just for getting the idea, not drawn in great accuracy.)

Is there any idea how I could do this task in ArcGis? In the data in which I want to use this is thousands of polygons (in one shapefile) which should be treated like this.

I am grateful of your help!
