Manduca da Praia was a capoeira mestre in the ninetieth century who was famed for his skill as a fighter, his sense of style and his elegant manor. He was tall, had a gray and copper color hair, a pointy beard and wore a white beaver hat. It was said that just looking at his face commanded both fear and respect and his eyes always showed him to be determined and extremely confident in himself and his abilities.
