Greatmats' 1 meter by 1 meter by 1-5/8-inch thick grappling mats weigh just 9 pounds per tile and are excellent choices for MMA floors, whether permanent or temporary. These professional grade grappling mats are versatile, and are suitable for use for Judo, grappling, BJJ and Jiu Jitsu competitions, or for training in your mixed martial arts studio.

These versatile bjj mats are designed with the specific needs of MMA training in mind. The durable tatami mat top surface texture will not give your skin burns as you perform MMA moves. The dense Polyethylene (PE) and EVA foam materials are waterproof, lead free and latex free. Designed to be used with bare feet, these mats can be used with soft martial arts shoes, though they may scuff the mat. This grappling mat has a 4 foot ASTM fall height rating, meaning it is well-equipped to lessen the impact of throws and tumbles, and it can even be used in indoor playground settings.

This grappling mat is available in three reversible multi-color pairings: Black and Gray, Red and Blue, or Green and Gray. Consider alternating tiles to create a multi-colored pattern or design, adding a professional appearance to your gym, studio, or practice space.

One of the great benefits of these bjj mats is their easy and simple installation. These mats can be laid directly on any hard, flat surface; there's no need for additional padding. Because the mats have an interlocking design, you can simply align them and connect them. The mats lock together strongly and won't pull apart during practice or training. You can expand the floor or change its design by adding and moving mats around. And if a mat gets damaged, all you have to do is replace that mat, rather than attempting to repair or replace the entire floor.

Greatmats MMA mats are used nationwide in professional studios and for competition floors. This product has a minimum order of 15 mats.

Use Types
This grappling mat is highly versatile, and is suitable for use as an MMA floor, in MMA studios, as a grappling mat for training, and for BJJ and Jiu Jitsu Dojo studios. In truth, there are many potential uses for these MMA mats. Consider the following potential applications:
- Home and professional MMA studio floors
- Grappling mat for training in both studios and at home
- Home and professional BJJ and Jiu Jitsu studios
- Indoor kids playgrounds
- MMA competitions

Top Frequently Asked Questions About Grappling Mats
Have questions about grappling mats? You may find the answers below. If not, please contact our sales representatives, who would be happy to answer any questions you have.
1. I only need mats for a small area?
These larger mats are a great choice for commercial installations, because they easily cover large areas. For a smaller application, consider our Home MMA Foam Tiles, which measure 2x2 feet.

2. Can these mats be used for martial arts other than Jiu Jitsu?
These grappling mats are designed for use with grappling, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, Jiu Jitsu, and Judo. Kids may use them for karate, but they are too soft to be suitable for karate practice for adults.

3. I'm looking for a simple installation. Do these mats fit the bill?
Installing these grappling mats couldn't be easier. Just fit the mats together, press down along the seams, and you're done. There is no adhesive to worry about, and you can pull up and relocate the mats later if you wish.

4. I have a pole, structure, or other object that is in my installation space. Can these mats be cut to fit?
Yes, these mats can be cut with a sharp utility knife, so you can create a wall-to-wall installation, or shape the mats around objects in your studio. To cut these mats, use a straight edge and score the mats with the knife. Make short, repeated cuts, working your way down through the mat. When your cut reaches three-quarters of the way through the mat, turn the mat over and complete the cut from the opposite side.

This grappling mat is ideal for MMA use. The no burn tatami top helps to prevent surface skin burns and rubs. With a 4-foot ASTM fall rating, these BJJ mats are capable of absorbing the shock of falls and tumbles, creating a safe practice and competition surface. Designed to be use with bare feet, this is a professional quality grappling mat that is affordable enough for home and studio use.

When looking at other grappling mats for sale, you'll rarely find a product that's so high in quality offered at such a great price. BJJ mats for sale can be cost-prohibitive, especially when you're outfitting a larger studio or a space for competitions.

At Greatmats we understand that you need professional quality products at a price that smaller studio and practice owners can afford. That's why we're proud to bring you these quality grappling mats which are versatile and suitable for countless applications.

Kids' Playground Use
These versatile grappling mats aren't just for martial arts, though. This mat's 4-foot ASTM fall height rating means that these mats are suitable for use with many indoor kids playgrounds. Kids will also appreciate the no-burn tatami surface, as tumbles and falls won't likely result in skinned knees and elbows. This forgiving surface is ideal for rough-and-tumble kids at play, and its economical price point makes it a great choice even for larger playground areas.

Installing these BJJ mats is easy and can be accomplished without professional help. In addition to the mats' low cost, this do it yourself installation can further save you money. As you plan your order and your studio's layout, don't forget to consult the Greatmats Pro Floor Designer. This online tool can help you to plan your floor, determining just how much material you will need and saving you money.

Please note: These grappling mats may expand with heat and humidity fluctuations. Always let the grappling mats acclimate to your room's temperature before beginning the installation.

Lay the mats down over a hard surface so that the mats are oriented in the same direction. Interlock the mats together by pressing on the seams for a perfect fit, every time. There is no adhesive needed for installation.
When performing a wall-to-wall installation, or when you need your mats to conform to objects such as a door jam or pole, use a sharp utility knife to cut the mats to fit.

During installation, leave an approximately 1/2-inch gap around the perimeter of your room. This allows for mat expansion, which can occur with fluctuations in heat and humidity. Additionally, keep direct sunlight off the mats if possible, as this can heat them up and cause expansion.

Ramped border strips are available for island installations. These ramped border strips, available in gray only, are sold separately as a set of two. Corner pieces are not available. The tatami pattern will always run the long way on the ramp and may not match the texture pattern direction on your floor.

Color tone variations can and will most likely occur within the same batch of mats. Even mats that are made at the factory within minutes of each other can vary in color. This is common with all interlocking EVA foam mats.

'Color coming off,' when coloring from the mats comes off on feet or uniforms, is not uncommon with puzzle mats. This occurs with puzzle mats of all types. We find that red and black are the most susceptible colors to this issue.

Maintaining your mats is easy. Clean the mats regularly with a vacuum, but always test the vacuum on the mats first to make sure that it does not damage your flooring.

Clean your mats with a damp mop with a mild household floor cleaner and hot water as needed. Customers have found diluted Pinesol to be a good solution. Spot clean using a scrubby and a sponge. A walk behind auto cleaning machine is recommended for cleaning this flooring in large commercial areas.

Q & A⌃ Back to top
Ask a question about this product

Product Questions:

When did you institute the 15 tile minimum requirement? That seems a bit high, considering 9 tiles covers 100 sq. ft.
Great question. Consider the Home MMA foam tile in a 2x2 ft tile size for smaller areas. The 1x1 meter tiles can only ship via freight delivery and are designed for larger commercial areas.
does this help with floor noise? I have downstairs neighbors that are always brooming my ceiling because of my boys jumping around and am trying to find a solution. please let me know. My floors are hard-wood. Leyna
Yes this would help, its a very thick and durable foam tile.
Are the edge peices angled toward the floor to assist with avoiding trip hazards? If not can you supply?
We do have a beveled down edge piece that is available as an add on product. The edges supplied with the tiles are not beveled, please contact customer service for additional information. We have an image of the beveled edge option we can provide.
Are these difficult to cut to fit odd shaped rooms?
This tile can easily be cut using a sharp utility knife.
What is good for repairing punctures in these mats? Have three holes to repair that were made from Staves impacting the floor.
Great question, however we do not have a great answer, you could try guerilla glue in the cut areas to hold the material back in place.
Does this foam become slippery when wet or sweaty?
Most surfaces will be more slippery when wet, its best to use when dry when possible, these tiles may be a little more slippery when wet depending on the shoe type or use with no shoes.
Are these mats too soft for doing Karate in addition to Ju Jutsu?
They are ok for kids and karate, they are a bit too soft for adults.
I am thinking on installing these mats in an area that isn't climate controlled. What temperature range can these mats handle?
These foam mats will shrink in the cold and will expand in the heat, they do require a stable climate environment.
Hi, really love these mats and continue to order more as we gain more opportunities to expand. Is it safe to use diluted bleach to disinfect these mats?
Yes very diluted bleach is ok for cleaner, also Pine-Sol is commonly used.

Customer Rating:

They're rigid enough for stand up and you can take a hard fall on it and not worry about getting hurt.

Anchorage, AK

Customer Rating:

The mats are very firm. It doesn't matter if I'm close to the seam or in the center of the mat. My foot doesn't sink. On top of that, the cushion is nice. You don't get hurt when you do takedowns, but on the other hand, your foot doesn't get stuck in there.
