Judo Puzzle Mats for Home and Dojo - Tatami

By Paige Cerulli Created: August, 2017 - Modified: April, 2021

Whether you’re outfitting a judo practice space at home or are renovating your dojo flooring, you’ll find an extensive selection of Jiu Jitsu and Judo mats at Greatmats. We’ve carefully selected a variety of mats that are safe, sanitary, and comfortable surfaces suitable for training and competition. All of our judo mats for home and professional use feature water resistant surfaces for easy sanitization and cleaning.

Our Judo and Jiu Jitsu mats include options like interlocking tatami puzzle mats and roll out mats or folding mats. Our rollout mats, crash mats, and folding mats are equipped with durable vinyl covers that protect their foam cores. Our tatami puzzle mats for martial arts are also highly popular, thanks to their shock-absorbing EVA foam core and no burn tatami surface that makes skinned elbows and knees a thing of the past.

The mat sizes range from 2x2 feet in size to six feet wide in custom lengths. The rolls are available in custom lengths for convenience. If you’re looking for home judo mats, consider our smaller mat sizes, which are more easily installed in smaller spaces. They also minimize the amount of wasted product you’ll face when performing an installation. For larger dojos, our larger mats will more quickly cover the area and limit seams.

All of our mats recommended for Judo measure at least 1.25 inches thick, and options up to 2 inches thick are available - aside from crash mats. All of these mats provide impact absorption to keep athletes safe during falls, takedowns and throws, and many of our mats also carry an ASTM fall height rating. If you want to maximize the cushion of existing flooring, or enhance the cushion of your new flooring, consider investing in our foam underlayment rolls.

While our mats are designed to provide cushion and shock absorption, their softness has been carefully balanced to ensure they meet martial artists’ needs. The mats are forgiving underfoot, but they’re still firm enough to support your athletes as they stand, leap, and spin.

Installing judo puzzle mats

Our judo puzzle mats are designed to be easy to install. Their edges fit together like a puzzle piece, and they create strong connections that won’t separate while in use. Most mats are available with edge pieces, so you can create a straight edge along a wall or around your island installation. Available in a variety of colors, you can create patterns or designs that are ideal for both training and competition. With no need for adhesive, these mats can be installed on hard, flat surfaces.

Many of our folding mats have connector strips on all four sides to allow for quick expansion of your grappling or training surface.

Our roll out mats do just that - roll out - for a quick installation and can be quickly connected together using specialized tape or connector strips.
