Taekwondo, or, the way of the foot and fist, is a very athletic and systematic form of martial arts. It teaches physical fighting skills, and it also places emphasis on spiritual and mental growth and maturity. Taekwondo involves a lot of kicking, from the front kick, side kick, roundhouse kick, back kick, reverse side kick, and hook kick. Because of the emphasis on stance and kicking, adequate taekwondo mats must be in place, not only to allow the participants to perform at full capacity, but also to protect them from strain, fatigue, and injury.
There are different styles and sizes of taekwondo mats, depending on the size of space in a home practice area, gym, school, academy, or competition ring. A competition area is a minimum of 10m x 10m and no larger than 12m x 12m. So, it’s nice to purchase puzzle mat systems that can be used to accommodate these spaces. Individual roll out mats are also great for practicing and perfecting skills.
Regardless of the type of taekwondo mat you prefer, Greatmats offers the best products available, with mats that will make practicing and competing safer and more enjoyable for your athletes.
