You can't settle for second rate when you're in the market for martial arts flooring. It could mean the difference between getting back up or making a trip to the ER. Especially in martial arts involving kicking or striking, like tae kwon do, you have to be confident in your stance. A solid foundation is your best bet for performing safely and effectively.Take a look at our tatami martial arts foam mats. These textured mats offer secure footing in 1/2" or 3/4" thicknesses. The firm EVA foam provides solidity and yet enough elasticity to absorb shock in the event of a fall. If you're going to launch a move, you can be sure our tatami mats will give you the right amount of support and protection to help you execute flawlessly.
Because our tatami martial arts mats are sold in packs of 6 interlocking mat measuring 24" square, you can easily purchase just enough for the area you wish to cover. For a small home practice area, one or two packs will be ample. If your needs change, you can easily pull up the mats, reconfigure them, and continue to practice knowing that their neither their durability nor quality has been compromised. If you're purchasing for a significantly larger area, check out our 40" mats. The larger mats are still 3/4" thick and provide the traction and support our small mats do, but are designed for larger applications like fitness centers and martial arts facilities.
If you are purchasing martial arts mats for the first time and are a beginner yourself, we highly recommend our thicker 3/4" mats for obvious reasons. If, however, you are experienced and know how to properly absorb take-downs, then the 1/2" mats may be preferable. Either way, you'll have great traction, solid support, and just the right amount of cushioning.
