Two answers: Originally, Capoeira was not started by any individual, it was a practice, which had been adapted from earlier ritualized martial arts, by a group of West-Central African slaves in Brazil, and was quickly morphed by various African, Indigenous, and Portuguese-Catholic influences. Capoeira as it is practiced now is largely descendent from two particular Mestres (Masters) of the art, who were given official sanction to teach in the '30s.
