When seeking to create a safe space for martial arts athletes in training at home or a studio, making use of martial arts mats from Greatmats is the best idea.

These mats appear with multiple thickness measurements, ensuring you can pair the right level of cushioning with the type of martial arts training that is occurring. Whether participating in Chinese martial arts, MMA, or any other discipline, our martial arts mats improve safety.

Size and Shape Options

The most common style for martial arts mats involves interlocking square-shaped mats with jigsaw puzzle edges.

You can typically select between mats measuring either 2x2 feet or 1x1 meter (about 3.3x3.3 feet) in size. Because installers often deploy these mats in a large, open training space, having large mats allows the installation to go faster.

Another option for these mats involves using folding gym mats. These provide a significant level of cushioning for practicing throws. Because they fold down to a small size after use, you can easily store them until they’re needed again.

Martial arts studios may host a variety of activities, so the installer may need to pick up the flooring after practice to reveal the subfloor. Our mats and pads do not require adhesive, so they’re easy to pick up and store after practice time ends.

Material Options

Different types of foam will be the primary material used with matting for martial arts workouts. The most common type of foam available in martial arts mats is ethylene vinyl acetate (EVA) foam.

EVA is a durable material, so it can stand up to rough workouts without showing significant wear and tear. It is usable over and over. EVA foam is also firm, so the athletes can use it to make quick movements without sinking into the foam.

It is an inexpensive foam, so you can cover a large space for a reasonable price. It is a cheaper option to install yourself versus installing a roll of flooring, which often requires hiring a pro.

For a higher level of cushion for a crash pad, we offer polyethylene (PE) foam padding. PE foam has quite a bit of give to it, so it will compress when someone walks or falls on it, helping to absorb energy. It then bounces back to its original shape immediately.

These pads use a vinyl cover over the PE foam to give it rigidity and durability.

Pattern and Texture Options

Multiple color options are available with our EVA foam puzzle edge tiles, such as red, blue, green, gray, black, brown, yellow, orange, pink, and others. When selecting crash pads, the vinyl cover is available in many different colors, but black or blue are the most common.

Some studios may use different tile colors to specify areas of the studio for different types of workouts. This can be helpful for younger kids to help them stay on task. Because all of the puzzle pieces use the same interlocking edge, you can mix and match colors as desired.

Some of the EVA foam mats will contain a slight texture, allowing athletes to maintain a sure footing. For tiles specifically made for martial arts mats, consider seeking a tatami surface on the mat, which provides traction while protecting against skin burns when athletes slide across the mat.

Common Use Options

Primarily, our martial arts mats work to provide a level of cushioning for athletes as they perform workouts or fall to the ground.

Cushioning is important, as it allows the athletes to protect their lower body joints during a long workout session. They’ll feel fresher after the workout on these mats versus working out on a hard style of flooring, meaning they’re ready for another workout the next day with less soreness.

Installation Options

One of the biggest advantages of these EVA mats is their ease of installation. Homeowners or studio owners will not need to hire a professional installer. The puzzle-style edges on the mats simply pop together without requiring glue or tape.

If you need to fit these mats tight against a wall, you will simply use a utility knife to cut through the foam to remove the jigsaw edge and create a straight edge.

The vinyl-covered PE mats don’t require special installation techniques either. They’re made to be portable for specific practice uses, so they do not require glue or tape.

Cleaning and Maintenance Requirements

These are highly durable mats that don’t require special cleaning or maintenance techniques.

With the EVA foam mats, you can sweep them with a broom or use a vacuum cleaner on them to remove dry debris. For a more thorough cleaning and sanitizing, you can use a mop with a neutral pH cleaning solution. Test the cleaner on a small part of the mat to ensure it will not cause discoloration. Do not use bleach.

For the vinyl-covered mats, the cleaning techniques are the same. Do not soak the mats in water. If you notice a puncture or tear in the vinyl, you can use a vinyl repair kit.
