This interlocking Karate mat is a firm, high density polyethylene (PE) and ethylene vinyl acetate (EVA) foam tile with a smooth leather surface finish specifically designed for barefoot and soft shoe foot work and striking moves.
Choose Greatmats 1 inch Karate mat when you are looking for a quality flooring surface for your dojo. The EVA material of each 40x40 inch mat carries with it a Shore C 50 density and non absorbent qualities. It is kid safe and, due to the interlocking design, requires no special adhesives for installation. Each tile comes with four border strips, giving you endless options for corner, wall-to-wall or island installation. If your karate mats need to be cut to fit, simply use a straight edge and a sharp utility knife to customize the interlocking tiles for your space.

You can be confident in the longevity of this 1 inch thick interlocking Karate mat. This product is guaranteed for bare feet and soft shoes only. The surface of this mat can experience excessive scuffing from shoes and protective gear skidding or sliding on the mat surface.
High density mats are specifically designed for Karate and Taekwondo floors. Our 1 inch mats are manufactured to meet strict design specs. These martial arts foam mats have been a favorite for trainers and teachers globally for more than a decade.
The reversible Karate floor mats come in three multi-color options... black/gray, red/blue and wooden/black.
Be sure to clean your Karate mats regularly with a vacuum (after testing the vacuum on the tiles to make sure it does not damage your martial arts flooring). Use a damp mop with basic household soap and hot water as needed. Spot clean using a scrubby and a sponge. A walk behind auto cleaning machine is recommended for cleaning this karate flooring in large commercial areas.
Allow an approximately 1/2 inch gap around the perimeter of your room during installation to allow for mat expansion which can occur with fluctuations in heat and humidity. Keep direct sunlight off the mats if possible as this can heat them up and cause expansion.
Color tone variations can and will most likely occur within the same batch of mats. Even mats that are made at the factory within minutes of each other can vary in color. This is common with all interlocking EVA foam mats.

Are the mats fire proof in any way?
My mother is elderly and in bad health and very weak and falls. I want a product that will protect her hips and things in a fall. Is this a product you would recommend for that purpose? Or do you suggest a different style?
Can you glue down the mats or use tape?
I bought my mats from you back around 2005/2004. I purchased the red and blue puzzle 1 inch mats.
I still have them today. I'm actually looking to get new mats for my new location. I got a lot of use out of my mats.
Wake Forest, NC
We are so happy to have a set of mats! The 1 inch mats are made of quality material, and will work well for sparring. So easy to assemble and versatile. We can set up one master ring, a couple smaller rings, or a long run way to practice jumping kicks. Fits our needs perfectly. We just got them, so don't know the status of durability, but from the quality of the product, and proper care, they should last for a long time. Storage is easy, as they stack nicely.

We love our Great Mats flooring. We opted for the 1" karate mats because the aerobic flooring was on backorder and we needed it quickly; I was worried, but completely unnecessarily. I am so pleased with my decision. No more joint problems for me or my customers-not from our floors! Our old floors were concrete under carpet. These are NOT slippery, yet easy to pivot and dance on. They are easy to clean. We vaccuum or dust with a swiffer-type dry mop and steam mop twice a week to sanitize. They can also be mopped with soap and water-we just haven't found the need to do that with the steam mop.
Customers who left because of joint issues related to our flooring, are now coming back.
EAGLE RIVER, AK
Greatmats was excellent to work with. The product was shipped as expected and communications were timely and professional. The product was exactly as advertised and is a fantastic Taekwondo academy floor! Great job Greatmats! Your products and customer service were excellent.
Thanks for all of your assistance. We were concerned about finding the right mat to go with our decorating scheme and be functional. The one-inch karate mats are perfect for our home dojo. Lots of cushion and a very classy appearance.

We order our dojo mats from Greatmats.com. After months of training on carpet, our students loved the new mats. It made a huge difference in our student's moral and performance. The mats were easy to install and fit wonderfully. We did have a few issues with the freight company but the customer support staff at Greatmats took care of the issue. We look forward to many years of training on our mats.
The Greatmats that I purchased recently and placed in the Dojo that my wife, daughter and me use. The mats are awesome and make training for our Taekwondo Black Belt tests so much more efficient and enjoyable.
Thank you Greatmats!
Ordered 36 - 1 inch premium Martial Arts mats for our dojang in our house and are 100% satisfied. We got a great price, received them as promised on time and the mats were easy to install. My wife, daughter and me are all Black Belts and do a lot of training at home and having these mats make a big difference in the quality of our training.
Thanks Greatmats, you really ROCK!
Also great in offices and packing mats for skydiving. Thanks!
the staff was easy to work with and explained product thoroughly. I have used them repeatedly for past 2 years.
Delivery was great, it was quick to arrive and the installation was incredibly easy! We couldn't be happier with the mats and our clients agree!
Very pleased with the product and ease of installation. I was a little concerned with slipperiness at first but have found it to be not a problem. My primary purpose is for martial arts training and the padding is very good for grappling and throws. I lots of forms barefoot as well and have done well keeping my footing... it is different from carpeting where I practice in a formal dojo.
Looks great and enhances the image of our dojo.
Great feel for daily karate training.
Mats look great and feel great. My students love the new mats.
Great product for the price! Super happy with how easy they were to install, and the protection they provide for my students. Will definitely order these again for my next karate space.
Very satisfied with the flooring. I recommend greatmats for all your martial arts flooring.
The puzzle cuts should be universal on all four sides. Having different cuts on four sides means that we as the consumer must buy extra mats due to having to cut the mats to make them fit our facility. If the puzzle cuts were universal than this would not be an issue. Also the color of the wood tiles vary greatly. Some are light some very dark.
COLORADO SPRINGS, CO
I ordered the woodgrain/black because I wanted the entire floor to look like a wood floor. The color of the mats were inconsistent so I tried several times blend the colors which didn't work out well. But in the end I was very happy with the results and I love my new floor! It was easy to install by myself. First I removed the carpet, carpet tack strips, carpet underlay and scaped off the glue. Then I vacuumed up the cement floor and assembled the full-sized mats directly over the cement in the majority of the room. Then, I measured and cut the remaining tiles to fit until the room was complete. Cutting and fitting the edges was easy. I will be using this room primarily to practice Nia and Yoga. It is very comfortable to dance on with bare feet and I don't even need to drag out a yoga mat!
I am not in favor of mats since I practice traditional Japanese Karate, and hardwood floor would be my only choice. I didn't want my new opened dojo (Unity Karate & Holistic Arts) to look like another Teakwondo school, but... I tried to keep the initial costs down and decided to go with these wooden look 1inch foam mats at least for now.
Mats arrived within a week of ordering which was great. Installation was easy, unfortunately I didn't order enough and didn't want to pay another $300!!! on shipping for additional 10 mats. There were enough edge peaces, so I used them to fill the "gaps". The floor looks great and many people got fooled that it actually isn't a hardwood floor.
Even though I am not super excited about the mats, my students love them. The fact that it is much safer to train on mats than on hardwood floor helps a lot, and I don't have to loose much sleep worrying about students getting injured falling down.
My main complaint about these mats is, that they are extremely slippery (Sales Rep assured me that they are not). We practice barefoot. They were covered/soaked in "Armor all" like substance and needed to be seriously "broken in" It was extremely difficult and dangerous to train in the beginning. We washed them numerous times with all kinds of detergents, even rubbing alcohol, without much luck. It took 2 months of training (6 times/week) to brake them in. If you leave any heavier objects laying around, they will cause indentations in the mats. The surface is not super smooth as it's been said in the reviews, it is light sand like texture. Overall decent value.
South Windsor, CT
So far, I am very impressed with this product. I bought it to replace inferior tiles from a competitor. These are much more shock absorbent and have a durable top layer that I doubt will wear or peel. They are a little thick to cut and at doorway transitions but the payoff is in injury prevention.
