About Us

Who We Are

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 multiple 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 un-obstructed work space during live rolling sessions.
