Customer Reviews for: Grappling MMA Mats 1-5/8 Inch
These mats are great. I have them in my gym and also my home gym. I teach BJJ and there perfect for ground work as well as takedowns. No mat burn either. They also do not slide around so no jammed toes.
Awesome product, easy install, looks great, and perfect for mma training, will buy again soon to expand gym.

I use Greatmats MMA and Grappling mats for my professional BJJ studio in Bloomingdale IL. As a 7 time World BJJ Champion Ive trained on many martial arts and Judo surfaces around the world. I would recommend Greatmats MMA mats for any pro dojo. These mats are easy to install and they never give me rug burns like other more expensive mats on the market.
We are really enjoying the new mats we installed. I expect that overtime peoples joints (ankles, knees, hips, etc) and skeleton are going to appreciate this softer surface as compared to thin carpet over concrete. Right now the mats are still a little slippery but seem to be getting a little less so. Of course, we are likely also getting use to the new feel. We clean the mats about 1 time per week with the procedure and materials recommended on you website.
These mats are fabulous! Great value for the price. They provide stable footing & at the same time good cushioning for falls. Highly recommend purchasing them!
Great Mats very strong and durable.
Portage La Prairie,
Great product. Shipping was a disappointment.
I am completely satisfied with my Great Mats purchase. I teach at a local "Anytime Fitness" facility that was interested in starting a Martial Arts program. I instruct in a variety of styles including Okinawa-Te / Aiki-Jujutsu / Kodakan Judo and the floor has worked out perfectly. It allows good footwork and body movement; it has a good feel for atemi landings and ground fighting workouts. The staff was very helpful in assisting me in my final decision. I just wish I had a bigger room to utilize, I would have bought more. Thanks for your help. Osu Danny McManus

These mats will do for grappling, however, I will need to make a spring loaded floor for throws as it is not quite thick enough. 2 inches thick would have been preferable. I give these mats a 4 out of 5. Thank you Great Mats!

I do want to express our thanks to you and your staff for the great customer service during the purchase of our mats. Every questions was answered, samples were promptly sent, and shipping and delivery was just as expected. We LOVE them and use them often. They are easy to set up and clean. They give us the ability to use an entire room or just a portion depending on our training needs. Staff's aches and pains from sessions of DT have gone down due to the quality of your product. Thanks Again, Stacy
I used your mats for a residential application. I covered a 20' x 20' play area on the concrete floor of my basement for my boys (9 and 6) to crash around on during our long Vermont winters. We love the mats for this purpose. You should consider marketing for residential applications as well. Best, Tim
The product arrived in good shape and very quickly after ordering. The mats are great and appear to do the job we wanted them to do. Very attractive and as advertised. I do have two suggestions: 1. Put installation instructions in with the product pointing out that the edges are not identical and thus only fit together one way. 2. Sales information needs to state that each mat comes with 4 edges creating a straight edge. If I could have saved a few dollars by deleting these edges, I would have. As it is, I have dozens of those edges and feel like it is wasteful to throw them away.
These mats are used every single day for karate, jiu jitsu, weapons, kickboxing & mma. They have been through heck so far and are still in great shape! They also cut easy for fitting around walls etc. Will order again when it's time...whenever that is!
Excellent product, impeccable service, The Mats are already installed in the socket University Santo Tunja , Boyaca, Colombia, students are already practicing Yoga and MMA on, very satisfied customer, Thank you! Andres Segovia Distributor Colombia South America Planetmats.com
Great mats! A good investment if you own an academy or a small area to just train.
I put down 25 squares for a 16' x 16' mat in my home gym. These are the same mats used where my son and I train BJJ. Everything went smooth from order to install, no problems. Money well spent.
I have been in the sport of Jiu Jitsu for many years. These mats are great. The cost and quality is perfect!
I'm a Judo black belt. These mats are the perfect practice mat. They have a firm feel to them but are great to be thrown on. The tatomi look without the tatomi skin burn is another plus. I'm glad I made this investment.
Shihan Mike Jolicoeur Ki-Do-Ryu Jiu Jitsu. My mats were shipped and received within a week. They arrived in good condition.They were easy to lay down.I chose grey and green.I was able to lay a pattern of a green outline edge with grey outer mats and green center mats creating a nice design. As a Jiu Jitsu practitioner I find them firm under foot and the puzzle seems disappear while doing footwork.I also find them suitable for throws and takedowns.So far I am quite pleased with my purchase of Greatmats
