The Oitekaze stable (追手風部屋, Oitekaze-beya) is a stable of sumo wrestlers, part of the Tokitsukaze ichimon or group of stables. It was established in its modern incarnation on 1 October 1998 by former maegashira Daishōyama, who is the stable's current head coach. He had married the daughter of the previous Oitekaze-oyakata and branched off from Tatsunami stable, taking some wrestlers with him including future sekitori Hayateumi and Daishōdai.[1] As of January 2018, it had 18 wrestlers. Seven wrestlers in the stable's history have reached the top makuuchi division as of 2017.[2]

In December 2016 the stable moved from the Isegahama ichimon to the Tokitsukaze ichimon.

Ring name conventions[edit]

Many wrestlers at this stable take ring names or shikona that begin with the characters 大翔 (read: daishō), in deference to their coach and the stable's owner, the former Daishōyama.
