Brad Boman - Interlocking Jiu Jitsu/Wrestling Mats At Home

By Paige Cerulli Created: November, 2023

Brad Boman, a boxer and martial artist, knew that he needed a quality flooring product when his teenage son became interested in the same sports. “The local dojo we’re at now got a new space and put in these exact mats,” says Boman, referring to the Jiu Jitsu Mats Interlocking. “We love them. We love them in the dojo so much that we brought them upstairs,” says Boman.

Boman ordered the mats from Greatmats and installed the mats in the upstairs of his home. His son uses the mats to train in Jiu Jitsu, wrestling, freestyle wrestling, and Greco-Roman wrestling. “They have just enough support that you still have some stability when you’re moving your feet, but at the same time, they cushion your fall,” Boman explains. “Honestly, I couldn’t think of a better product.”

The mats were easy to install and Boman is very pleased with their performance so far. He explains that you can have a straight edge on the mats when the edge pieces are installed, or you can remove the border strips for a zig-zag pattern. “The mats don’t move, and there’s no problem whatsoever,” he says of their installation. They’ve also held up exceptionally well to boxing, Jiu Jitsu, wrestling, and traffic from multiple kids. “It’s been over a month,” says Boman. “There’s not a mark on these things.”
