Very good value. I had originally considered installing a sprung hardwood floor, but decided to go with the karate mats instead because of ease of installation and cost. When first installed, they were a little slippery to bare feet, but after a short time the "tack" has improved. Also, they do not like having anything heavy sitting on them for any length of time--it causes indentations. But overall, I am quite happy with this product.

I would like to send a photo from Rice Lake Martial Arts Center in Rice Lake. We just got these mats over the summer and they are working great! The layout was done with much assistance from your tool on the website.

These mats are perfect for Karate training. The are not grooved or textured, which allows your feet to pivot easier. Some mats have too much grip. These have it just right. I would recommend these.

We love our mats. We have them on our basement WO room and the padding is a perfect amount for impact in Tae Kwon Do. The interlocking system holds the mats really well, we have had no problems with slipping or shifting. They were shipped much faster than we anticipated, it was wonderful to do business with a company which is so concerned with customer service.

Customer Rating:

Easy to install, helpful customer service, comparable cost to carpet. The only thing keeping it from 5 stars is a film or print that makes feet turn black. We have tried mopping it several times, but after an hour of practice, feet still turn black. It is getting better, so whatever it is will wear off in time, or we're not using a strong enough cleaning agent.

We have been working with Greatmats for over a decade now and recently moved into a larger location and once again Great Mats delivered our new 2100 square foot of brand new mats on time and as usual, their product and service is outstanding, they helped us select exactly what we need. We are still using our original mats from our very first order, which are over 11 years old now in our 2nd studio, which after a quick wipe up with a cloth and some warm water now look as good as they did the day that we bought them. Great Mats are by far the best flooring solution we have ever seen, either at other martial arts schools, or competitive events. The product is tough, durable , resilient and most of all - they look fantastic. Chris Howes

We were wondering how the interlock would work given that our floor is somewhat uneven, but the mats fit together really well so that has not been a problem. Lastly, the mats work really well to provide some cushioning for throws. We find we now don't have to use the folding mats as often. Oh, and the mats are also great to look at! We love the mats and would highly recommend for both the quality and the price of the product, as well as the terrific service.

Awesome flooring for our studio. Provides good footing and is absorbing falls without hurting the students like no other mat I've trained on. If you would like pictures of my students working out on it please email me.

Raleigh, NC

I absolutely love the new mats. They look great, work great, and everyone who has seen them loves them, too!


Service was exceptional... Product is exceptional... Our clients love the feel and the stability the1" EVA foam mats provide them and they love the look of the wood grain mats and how they add to the traditional look to our fitness/martial arts studio. Thank-You very much GREATMATS and a special Thank-you to David for taking care of all our needs!!!


I have found your mats to be both very cost effective and a very nice addition to my business. They look great, feel great, and have gotten nothing but rave reviews from my clients. Your customer service, delivery, and product have been first rate. I would definitely recommend your company to others.


We ordered 150 mat pieces(30 pks) for our rennovation to our school and are completely thrilled with the new surface.
We previously had carpet and pad, but this really gives the students good support and makes you feel more energized after working out. The only negative I can see was the fact that when we ordered this volume of mats, you would think they would be all the same color or lot number. We had blue/red combinations and had to use the other side where the color was noticeably different.
Students and parents appreciate the new surface as it really gives our school a more professional look.
Overall, on a scale of 10, I would give this product a 9; only because of the non-match lot color.

Huntington, WV

bought mats for kids to practice sparring for taekwondo, great quality for the price and mats are very easy to install. mats are perfect for practicing kicks and have enough padding for falling. however would not be enough padding for heavy judo throws or hard falls, the wood color is great.

Castro Valley, CA

The mats came in very quickly and ordering was a breeze. We installed them very easily and cutting them to fit the odd corners of our school was a snap. The mats have the necessary firmness for stand-up arts such as our Wing Tsun, but still provide ample softness for falling, rolling and ground-fighting. A perfect compromise for stand-up arts that don't want "squishy mats" but still need some cushioning. Recommended!

Weehawken, NJ

Great mats qualitie is great , costumer service respond quickly


I am very happy with the product. The wood grain looks great! The price was very reasonable and the product was delivered in a timely manor. The only slightly negative would be that the floor is a bit harder than I expected. I may ad a layer of carpet padding to compensate. That being said, I am 95% satisfied with the purchase and would recommend highly.

Waupaca, WI

Our Marital Arts Studio recently purchased this flooring. The ordering process was easy and Greatmats took care of all of the shipping and brokerage paperwork.

It took only a few hours to install all of the mats...the look was amazing! Our Grand Master is a quiet person, but it was easy to see that he was very excited with the flooring. We have been using the matting for about a month now and it is great. Everyone has commented on how professional it look, how the mats can take running, jumping and stretching on them with no signs of moving or coming apart.

We give this product the highest rating for quality, and highly recommend it to any other martial arts studios. We also rate Greatmats 5 stars for their support!

Calgary, AB

Before purchasing from GreatMats I was under the impression that good customer service and quality products were a thing of the past. I am glad to have been proven wrong!
GreatMats you are the best!! I have never had such good customer service and the quality of the mats is top notch for a price you will not find anywhere.
