Karate icon Fumio Demura Sensei, the subject of the 2015 documentary "The Real Miyagi" speaks about why he uses Greatmats Elite Striking Arts Pro Tatami Mats at his Shito-Ryu Karate-Do Genbu-Kai International studio in Santa Ana, California.
"I start karate with wood floor. In the beginning it was a little harder. We come to here, we had wrestling, mat, but I hit my toes all the time. Then later, we got tatami mats."
" The mat is best for me – tatami mats – not to soft, not too hard – and I can throw the kids without hurting them. On the legs, it's not too bad. So perfect for me. Tatami mat"
"I recommend people if they have money, buy the tatami mat. This way people are much easier. The people in the beginning who didn't know said too soft, but now they love it."
