My name is Peter Thibado I have been studying and teaching the Enneagram for about 20 years. I am soon to be a 9th Degree Black Belt in the art of TaeKwon-Do. For many years I have called my school Thiba-Do TaeKwon-Do. Thibado is an archaic French name which means The Bold Ones, TaeKwon Do literally translated mean The Way of Hands and Feet. This is why I have titled the book The Way of the Bold Ones. I grew up in a large family, I am the seventh of eleven children. Rural Wisconsin is where we lived. I left home at an early age and moved to Colorado where I was an underground hard-rock miner. I left there in 1985 and moved to Florida and became a building contractor. I have operated a TKD school all my life. One year after the earthquake in Porta prince Haiti. I went there for a couple of years to help an orphanage and teach TKD. I live in Florida now still building and remodeling homes.
