A black belt under the well-known Tim Thielen. Mike Peters has a unique systematic approach to the gentle art, having a few belts under the 10th Planet system and a strong background in Pedro Sauer Jiu-Jitsu. Mike is well-known in Chicagoland for his "nothing is sacred" approach to Jiu-Jitsu, with a laser-like focus on eliminating inefficient paths to victory. Often praised for his deep understanding of modern leg lock attacks, Mike combines the cutting edge of No Gi grappling with the grit and positional domination tactics that made the sport of Jiu-Jitsu legendary. As the head coach and owner of Five Points Jiu-Jitsu, Mike's goal is to create vicious competitors while also facilitating a safe, fun environment for everyone to train. When Mike is not on the mats, he can be convinced to play video games without too much trouble and enjoys tinkering with 3D printers, listening to punk music and spending time with his son.
