Protecting the Martial Artist

Martial artists are usually trained to protect themselves, but a hard floor and a bad fall can equal a bad injury. It’s our job to make sure you’re protected when you practice, whether at home or in your gym, with our Tatami finish martial arts mats. We can’t guarantee an injury-free workout or competition, but you’ll be much safer and more secure in your practice knowing you have a professional grade surface beneath you to absorb shock and pad falls.

Our Tatami finish martial arts mats were designed with a ribbed texture that mimics the surface of the original grass and straw tatami mats used long ago for practice, and that were also used as floor coverings in homes that could afford them. But these mats are available to everyone, very affordably, and are a heck of a lot softer to land on than straw! Our mats are made from EVA foam, so they’re resilient while they take a beating. We offer mats in three different thicknesses and two sizes, so we’re sure you’ll be able to get the coverage you want and the padding you need.

For the, shall we say, “mature” martial artist, sometimes the least amount of padding is the best. Our 1/2″ mats give you a definite feel of the hard ground while still offering padding and traction. If you would like a little more cushioning, the 3/4″ mats are a great step up. You’ll be supported amply and won’t have to worry about the discomfort of a hard fall. Now if you want the most padding we offer, especially if children are going to be using the mats, we suggest the 1″ mats. These offer superior padding without compromising stability or grip. If you have a small area to cover, maybe in your home or garage, the 24″x24″ mats are perfect. Order only as many as you need, connect them together, perhaps adding a little carpet tape to the underside to prevent slipping, and you’ll have your space covered in no time. If you’re looking to floor a studio or gym, our 2’x2′ jumbo mats are the way to go. You’ll get the same great padding, cover a larger area faster, and with fewer tiles. Mix the colors for a true competitive feel and you’ll have a hard time quitting when it comes time.

Martial arts flooring is easy when you have a great distributor like We Sell Mats. Our customer service people are the best in the business (just read some of our reviews) and they stand on EVA foam mats all day long, so they know what they’re talking about! Give them a call if you have questions about any of our mats and they’ll get you set up with exactly what you need.
