Durable judo mats for Jiu Jitsu and MMA, Interlocking BJJ and Jiu Jitsu floor mats.
The Judo Jiu Jitsu Mats Interlocking 1-1/4 Inch x 1x1 Meter product offers an interlocking professional judo mat designed for ground work training in several martial arts disciplines.
Each of the 1 x 1 meter Judo mats for sale are reversible, enhancing the value they yield. With a professional construction, the mats provide shock absorbing properties for all martial arts groundwork and workouts.
High Density Judo Mats
Count on our Judo mat products to provide years of high-end performance. These durable 1.25-inch thick foam mats all include a warranty of 1 year. The materials in our martial arts flooring products will provide a safe, cushioned surface for both adult and youth students. For extra protection during throws, consider folding mats with 2 inches of thickness.
The Judo mats price for closed cell EVA foam is a bit higher than open cell foam, such as is found in carpet padding. But we always recommend closed cell foam over open cell in an athletic studio setting, because the closed cell tiles will not absorb odors, and they’re easy to disinfect and clean.
Shock Absorption Jiu Jitsu Mats
For martial arts studios, having strong shock absorption properties in the flooring is important. Athletes will be able to work out longer without feeling fatigue in their leg and ankle joints when the Jiu Jitsu mat products have the proper level of cushioning.
Our Jiu Jitsu mats are appropriate for martial arts featuring a lot of groundwork, grappling, or throwing, because they have a Shore C material density rating of 35. These mats are a bit softer than mats with a higher Shore C rating of 50 or 55, which deliver a firmness level more appropriate for karate.
No-Burn Tatami Texture
The best Judo mats for barefoot workouts will feature a tatami texture. Our tatami surface Judo mats provide a sure footing surface that’s ideal for these workouts, while also eliminating the possibility of floor burns. This style of product is also great for MMA and grappling work, as the MMA puzzle mats will be extremely durable.
Don’t worry about the tatami surface wearing off with these Judo mat products, as the texture is molded into the tiles. In fact, we’ve designed the tatami surface to withstand street shoes. If boots or heavy shoes are allowed on the mats, some scuffing may occur, but this does not affect performance levels.
If heavy-duty foot traffic is a concern in the martial arts studio, consider Judo mats that make use of a thatch texture surface. However, thatch mats are more commonly used for sports like boxing and taekwondo instead of Judo.
Judo, MMA and Jiu Jitsu
For the martial arts studio that features multiple disciplines, our Judo mats work nicely for Jiu Jitsu or MMA workouts as well. Although our mats for Judo do have some cushioning properties, they retain an appropriate level of firmness, giving athletes a sure footing, whether they’re working with bare feet or shoes. Don’t worry about sinking into the mat and rolling an ankle, either.
These 1.25-inch martial arts mats are a smart choice when performing throws or groundwork. Although our Judo floor mats have a nice level of fall protection, they have not undergone fall-height testing. Greatmats does offer MMA puzzle mats that have a thickness measurement of 1 5/8 inches, which delivers a fall-height rating of up to 4 feet. The extra thickness in these Jiujitsu mats delivers a nice level of additional cushioning and padding.
For disciplines that will involve hard throws, we’d recommend Judo crash mats, folding mats of at least 2 inches in thickness, landing mats, or Pro MMA Smooth mats of at least 2 inches in thickness.
Beyond the martial arts studio, our customers love these Judo mat tiles for use at home in play areas for children. The flooring gives kids a bit of cushioning during rough-housing or play time, but it’s also easy to clean.
Interlocking Puzzle Design of Judo Mats
When seeking an easy-to-install type of Judo floor mats, the interlocking style works nicely. Each piece weighs a little more than 7 pounds, allowing one or two people to handle the installation. Here are some ideas to make the installation process go smoothly.
Start by aligning the Judo flooring mats in the same direction throughout the area where the flooring will be used. Then press the puzzle edges together, either with hand pressure. Aligning the tiles ahead of time will speed the installation process.
These mats work equally well in a wall-to-wall or island installation. For the island installation, use the border strips that ship with each Judo mat tile. The skinny border edge pieces create the smooth edge desired in an island installation.
For a wall-to-wall installation, use the border edge pieces to create flat edges against two of the four walls in the room. For the other two walls, cut the foam tiles with a sharp utility knife and a straight edge, creating a finished edge along the wall.
We suggest leaving a 1/2-inch gap at the edge of the room in a wall-to-wall installation. This puzzle style of Judo mat may expand a bit, depending on the levels of heat and humidity in the room. Should these tiles be exposed to direct sunlight for long periods of time, they may expand too.
Beyond ease of installation, our customers love these puzzle edge Judo mats because they’re easy to disassemble and move from location to location. No adhesive is required to assemble the flooring, meaning disassembly is an easy process. Some of our customers choose this easy-assembly flooring for trade shows for this reason.
Additionally, should an individual Judo mat become damaged, just pull the mat out of the grid and replace it with another piece or flip the reversible damaged mat over and reinstall it if the puzzle edges line up properly.
Color Options for Jiu Jitsu Mats
Some of our reversible Judo mats provide different colors on each side. With the black and gray mats, we’ve created the finished tatami surface on each side, making these mats perfect for martial arts. With the reversible design and color choices, some people will choose to create a pattern in the floor, such as checkerboarding.
Understand that even within the same batch of Judo mat tiles, individual mats may have slight color tone variations. This is a common occurrence when manufacturing interlocking EVA mats. We recommend mixing up all of the tiles in the order before installation to make the color seem more natural.
Greatmats offers a great value and Judo mat price for these interlocking style mats at roughly $2.25 per square foot of flooring area.
Cleaning of Jiu Jitsu Mats
We recommend using a vacuum cleaner when performing routine cleaning on the Pro Judo and JiuJitsu Mats. Most customers have no problem with this process, but we suggest testing the vacuum cleaner on an extra tile or on an area of the floor that is out of the way before working on the entire floor. Occasionally, heavy-duty vacuums may damage the surface of the tile or cause scuffing.
Water spills are not a problem with our Judo mats, because they are waterproof. Use a dry towel to clean up water or sweat.
For small stains and spots, a small amount of Dawn dish soap works gently on the tiles. For more stubborn spots, we recommend using a diluted vinegar or diluted bleach directly on the surface of the tiles. Apply the solution with a soft scrub brush or a sponge.
Some customers will clean a large area of this flooring using a walk-behind cleaning machine. Again, test the machine on an out-of-the-way section of the flooring to ensure it won’t cause damage.

Q: 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!
Q: Will these mats withstand use with shoes or boots?
Q: 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?
