Hama Dankichi (浜 団吉 lit. hama dankichi) is a recurring character in Hajime no Ippo. He is a boxing trainer and former Kentou boxer. He is a friend and former rival of Kamogawa Genji and Nekota Ginpachi. He is currently the trainer of Volg Zangief.


In his younger days, Hama boxed along with Kamogawa and Nekota, but never managed to reach their level, partially due to his unusually fragile jaw. Nevertheless, he is a brilliant tactician who, since having left Japan for Mexico, is renowned for his successful training of several champions, including Sanada Kazuki. Hama still harbors deep feelings of rivalry towards Kamogawa, and strives to one day train a boxer that can defeat Makunouchi Ippo or Takamura Mamoru. He is currently the trainer of Alexander Volg Zangief in America.
