Martial arts can be dangerous training – there’s a lot of force directed at the body, and the body is often directed into the floor. Luckily for you, you’re looking in the right place for the flooring you’ll need to make martial arts training as effective (and painless) as possible. There are two main factors to consider when shopping for this flooring. The first is quality – we’re very familiar with the difference between a good and a bad mat, and rest assured, we only sell products that we can recommend to anyone. These are no different. They’re designed like our other interlocking EVA and PVC mats, so they’re durable and easy to install.
The second thing to consider is the thickness of the mat. Sure, if you’ve got a foot of foam underneath you, you’re more or less guaranteed a painless landing, but what about your footing? So there’s a bit of a balance with thickness. The thicker the mat, the squishier it will be underfoot, which, in excess, is a bad thing for martial arts. We offer martial arts mats in both ½” and ¾” thicknesses, because we find that range is most effective for protecting your safety while not impeding your ability to train the way you want to. The choice is, of course, ultimately yours. Definitely contact us if you still have questions. We can also send you free samples of the material if you’re still not quite sure which one you want.
As always, you are our first concern. From the design of the mats we sell, all the way to delivery, and any customer service that might occur along the way, we want to make this a simple, easy process for you. We’ve got multiple options for shipping, and can expedite orders if you’re in a hurry. Let us know what you need, and we’ll make it happen!
