Making your home martial arts practice area better suited to your needs is easy with EVA foam tatami finish martial arts mats. Doesn’t matter which art you practice, because the mats come in varying thicknesses so you can find the one that suits your needs perfectly.
Let’s start with the thickest martial arts mat: the 1″ thick martial arts mat. These are the kinds of mats you’ll find in teaching studios all over the country because they provide the most padding and therefore can be used for those new to the arts as well as children. When you’re in the early learning stage, you want as much padding as you can get without compromising your ability to balance and get good traction. The 1″ martial arts mats are easy to install, with their tabbed edges, so you can have your home studio covered in just minutes. If you’re going to be doing lots of movement or grappling, we suggest you put some carpet tape on the underside of the mats at the seams to make them even more secure.
3/4″ martial arts mats do the same job of protecting you as the 1″ mats do, but give you a greater feeling of the ground beneath you. They’re made of EVA foam, just like the 1″ mats, so they will absorb shock and help prevent injuries. Nothing brings a martial arts practice to a grinding halt faster than an injury. With maximum ribbed traction and 3/4″ of padding, these mats will last as long as your practice does.
If you really want to feel grounded in your home martial arts practice, perhaps the 1/2″ martial arts mats are what you’re seeking. These are not for use when kids are involved. Stick to the thicker mats for them. But if your home martial arts studio is for you alone, the 1/2″ martial arts mats offer just enough padding to protect while giving unparalleled traction and grip.
There is a season for everything under the sun, and there is a martial arts mat for every home martial arts studio. Find yours today.
