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 durability in our Judo floor mats comes from closed cell EVA foam. This style of foam does not absorb water, ensuring a long life. For outdoor needs, Greatmats also has UV-resistant Judo mats for sale using EVA foam.

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 or with a small mallet. 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 Taekwondo 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.

Martial Arts Mats Tile Size Measurements

Here are the exact measurements of the individual 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

Occasionally, the tiles may not quite match these measurements because of expansion of the materials from heat or excessive humidity.


Product can be damp mopped with hot water. Test your vacuum before use.

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.

REVIEWS⌃ Back to top

Customer Rating:

I chose the 1.25 inch puzzle mats because of their thickness and cushion. I wanted to save not only my ailing joints but also those of my students who had been training on hard flooring for a number of years with me. I like the size, look, and ultimately the feel of the mats when executing techniques and moving at a fast pace. I am more inclined to stay after my own class and work out now as opposed to before when I would just go home and workout after.

These mats were a true life and health saver. I no longer have ankle pain after class, and students do no wince anymore from running on hard flooring. I can concentrate more on technical execution and not worry about how my foot will feel when it hits the floor. They are easy to clean and have excellent traction once the initial oil wears off.

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.

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.

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.
