Interlocking Foam Mats for Judo Practice

The Lite product offers an interlocking professional judo mat designed for ground work training in several martial arts disciplines.

These reversible and economical judo mats for sale work great for skill development. The tatami surface texture on the 1 by 1 meter and 1.25 inches thick mats will not cause rug burns, allowing you to train longer and harder.

The professional judo mats are shock absorbing and will provide a safe and clean surface for judo groundwork, MMA workouts and Jiu Jitsu workouts.

EVA High Density Foam

Our 1.25-inch thick foam judo mat will last for years of use in your dojo or professional studio and comes with a 1-year warranty. This judo flooring is safe for kids, as well as being lead and latex free.

EVA foam (short for ethylene-vinyl acetate) is a closed cell type of foam, which gives it durability and ensures it won't absorb water. Additionally, Greatmats offers EVA foam judo mats for sale that have a resistance to UV radiation.

Although you'll pay a little more for this type of foam versus a carpet padding type of open cell foam, the EVA closed cell foam offers a longer lifespan and avoids problems with odors and mildew. With a closed cell construction, the EVA foam tiles are easy to clean and disinfect. These types of foam tiles resist cracking as well.

EVA Foam Versus Foam Rubber

The EVA foam contains no rubber, but it's often incorrectly called foam rubber or expanded rubber because of its ability to absorb shock and its buoyancy.

Foam rubber is different from EVA high density foam in terms of the manufacturing process. Foam rubber consists of a manufacturing process where a foam agent is added to the rubber during the construction process, which adds air to the material. Foam rubber is a type of material that you may find in seat cushions and mattresses, but it's not durable or firm enough to use as a flooring material.

Shock Absorption

These judo floor mats make a great choice for athletics because of their shock absorption properties. Additionally, the judo mats for sale contain an anti-fatigue quality, which allows people to work out longer without feeling fatigued feet and legs.

Our judo mats for sale provide a Shore C material density rating of 35. This rating is at the lower end of Shore C ratings for our foam mats, which range from 35 to 55. Martial arts that involve a large amount of groundwork, as well as grappling and throwing, work best with a Shore C density rating of 35 to 40. Firmer mats, such as those with a Shore C rating of 50 to 55, provide a greater level of firmness that works better for karate.

No-Burn Tatami Texture

The tatami texture on the surface of the judo mat tiles provides a great mix of grip for barefoot workouts, while removing the risk of burns from the mats. Our judo puzzle mats work great for your studio when you are looking for a durable puzzle mat for grappling practice and MMA training.

The tatami texture is molded into the surface of the tiles, meaning the tile remains durable, even after hours and hours of training. The top surface of tatami is not made to withstand heavy boots or street shoes. However, even if you do notice some scuffing on the surface of these tatami tiles from heavy shoes, such blemishes will not affect the performance of the tiles.

If you're looking for a texture on the judo mat tiles that will stand up to a lot of hard core foot traffic, consider a thatch texture. Such mats are made more for taekwondo and boxing than for judo.

Judo, MMA and Jiu Jitsu

Our judo mats also work for other disciplines, including Jiu Jitsu and MMA. The EVA foam included with the tiles offers enough firmness to allow athletes to push off from a stable surface. You won't have as many concerns over suffering rolled ankles with these firm tiles, as your feet won't sink deeply into the judo mats while working out.

And the surface of the tiles provides enough grip to work well for those athletes working with bare feet.

The 1.25-inch judo mats for sale provide good fall protection and work best for disciplines that involve groundwork and throwing.

Our lightweight judo mats have not been fall-height tested, so if you need a fall-height tested judo mat that'll offer additional padding, but retains the interlocking puzzle design, we'd suggest our 1-5/8-inch thick mats - which are rated for falls of up to 4 feet.

For over the shoulder and hard throwing practice, we recommend additional floor padding, such as a 2-inch thick folding mat, a crash mat, a landing mat, or 2-inch thick Pro MMA Smooth mats.

Additionally, these judo mat tiles work great in kids play areas and basements for a durable but easy-to-clean flooring.

Interlocking Design for Easy Installation

When you're ready to install the interlocking pieces, we have collected a series of tips you can use to have more success with your installation.

Lightweight Mats: Our interlocking judo mats are lightweight and easy to install. Each tile weighs just over 7 pounds, meaning one person can handle the installation alone if needed.

Interlocking Puzzle: To install the mats, just lay them down, aligning them in the same direction. Then interlock the tiles together, using the puzzle edges.

Island Installation: If you want to create an island installation, where the connected mats will form an island in the center of the room, each mat also comes with four border strips. Just apply the border strips to create a straight edge.

Wall to Wall Installation: Or if you want to create a wall to wall installation, you'll use the border strips to create a flat edge against two of the four walls. You then can cut the foam mats to fit against the other two walls. Use a straight edge and a sharp utility knife to cut the mats to fit almost flat against the wall.

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.

No Adhesive Required: Without the need for adhesives for installation, our judo mats are also easy to remove and reinstall in a new area. For this reason, some businesses will even use this type of flooring for trade shows. The judo mat tiles can be moved from place to place easily.

Fixing Damage: Should one of your tiles become damaged, simply pull out the damaged tile and replace it with a new one. Or you can flip the tile and use the other side. There is no need to replace the entire floor because of one damaged section. These tiles cannot be repaired, meaning replacement is the best option.

Color Options

This durable foam mat features two colors with black on one side and gray on the other. Our judo mats are truly reversible with a finished color and tatami surface on each side, so you can checkerboard your floor or create unique patterns or designs on your floor should you desire. (The red/blue colored judo mats for sale at one time are no longer available.)

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.

Price and Longevity Considerations

The judo mat price you'll find at Greatmats for these interlocking judo mats is about $2.25 per square foot, which provides a great value for this type of flooring.

Cleaning with a vacuum is the best method for regularly caring for the Pro Taekwondo Mats. We recommend that you test your vacuum on the mats to ensure the machine won't cause damage. (Some especially heavy and powerful vacuums could damage the surface material of the mats.) Test the flooring with the vacuum in an area where if damage occurs, it won't be noticeable.

To wipe up a water spill or sweat, just use a dry towel. To clean spots, only use diluted vinegar or diluted bleach for cleaning the surface of the taekwondo mats. Dawn ship soap is also very gentle for foam flooring tiles. Spot clean using a scrub brush and a sponge. In large commercial areas for a more thorough cleaning, you may use a walk behind auto cleaning machine. These non-absorbent mats do not soak up any water or chemicals during the cleaning process.

Tile Size Measurements

The exact measurements of the individual tiles varies, depending on how you're using the tiles.

Side to side with border strips attached, 41 by 41 inches
Outside to outside of interlocking tabs, 40.25 by 40.25 inches
Outside to inside of interlocking tabs, 39.375 by 39.375 inches
Coverage per tile, 10.8 square feet

Understand that the measurements may fluctuate if tiles are heated, because they may expand.

Ask a question about this product

Product Questions:

Hi, I'd like to center this mat in the middle of the garage. To that end, do I need ''border'' mats? Or is there a border segment? And how do I purchase the border elements? Will these mats stay in place on epoxy floors? Thanks!
Each tile is shipped with four border pieces, that will created a finished edge, however they are not beveled. Depending on the size of your installation the tiles could potential shift somewhat with side to side movement. Larger installations are more stable.
Will these mats withstand use with shoes or boots?
Not so much, the top surface of this tile is designed for bare feet and soft shoes only.
A lot of mat cleaners specify they are to be used on ''nonporous'' surfaces. Would those types of cleaners be appropriate on these mats, or is there a specific disinfectant that works best for these?
One safe disinfectant is diluted bleach or pine sol.

Customer Rating:

The thickness is perfect for training in Krav Maga, Jui Jitsu, boxing and kickboxing. Even though I steam clean them two times per day, the colors are still vibrant.

Concord, CA

Customer Rating:

Pretty decent mats for the price. The only reason I gave these mats a 4 star instead of a 5 is that they are a little hard for a ''judo'' style mat. Other than that they are perfect. I saved a lot of money and they look great too


Customer Rating:

These mats are great. We use them for Krav Maga, stand-up techniques, throws and ground fighting. We had them for over three years in one location and just ordered new set for our second location. They don't stretch over time and they stay in place. Great quality product!


Customer Rating:

Thanks for your patience and your help. We can't wait to try out your roll out mats in the future.

Bolingbrook, IL

Customer Rating:

Jiu-jitsu is the art I practice. You cannot install these on concrete and just fall, or shoulder roll all day. It is not cushiony enough for hip tossing or any of that. However if you go and buy the soft stuff that goes 7nder carpet, ithe would be pretty nice. I went and bought four cheap egg carton mattress cover to put underneath and that works decent enough to not get hurt everyone someone sweeps you. The material cuts really easy. Fingernails and toenails will take a chunk out of this stuff easily. I would buy this again just because it's the cheapest and still so expensive and just buy extra carpet padding to put underneath. Also you probably want some mat tape to tape over seams. You can hurt you self if a toe or finger slides in between and you rolling partner ''bends'' it out. Hope this helps.

Customer Rating:

These mats are excellent. Medium firm feel and safe to wrestle on. We laid them over concrete and have class every day. BJJ and kickboxing and cardio work alike, they hold up to the abuse.
