Otake stable

Otake stable

Stable of sumo which former yokozuna, Taiho founded

In May 1971, Taiho, a former Yokozuna (first-ranked sumo wrestler) who had belonged to Nishonoseki stable retired and succeeded to the name "Ichidai Toshiyori Taiho." In December, he broke away from Nishinoseki stable along with a few apprentices and founded Taiho stable. Because Taiho was retiring in May 2005, on January 1, 2004, Ohtake XVI became the master and the name of the stable was changed from Taiho stable to Otake stable. Subsequently, Dairyuu succeeded Ootake to inherit the running of the stable in July 2010 (the 22nd year of the Heisei period). Osuna-arashi is currently active as a ranking sumo wrestler. ※It is information as of September, 2014.
