About Us

UndergroundBJJ is the home to Erie, Pennsylvania's, first Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Black Belt, Michael Rooney.


We have a diverse collection of belt ranks training which gives multiple perspectives from advanced to beginner, and with each class containing black, brown, purple, and blue belts, there is never a shortage of experienced practitioners on-hand.



Training takes place in a wide-open, 1150 sq ft location, and the floor is matted wall-to-wall with high quality Tatami style mats, which provides a safe cushion and an unobstructed work space during live rolling sessions.
