Interlocking Karate and Taekwondo Floor Mats

Choose our heavy duty karate mat when seeking quality flooring for a studio or at-home workout area. Our 1 inch thick interlocking foam mats deliver excellence across the board, generating impressive versatility. These interlocking karate mats are constructed of firm polyethylene (PE) and ethylene vinyl acetate (EVA). They have a smooth leather finish specifically designed for multiple shoe types. They are perfect for allowing quick movements from participants and athletes.

Large Karate Mat

This karate mat measures 40x40 inches (or about 1x1 meter) with a Shore C 50 density. This big coverage means it will deliver desired results as a taekwondo competition mat size.

It contains materials that are safe for children. The foams are extremely durable and do not absorb liquids. Closed cells styles cost a bit more than open cells, but open cell potentially will absorb moisture, which can lead to problems with odor, mold, and mildew.

Ethylene Vinyl Acetate: It offers a durable and flexible karate mat.

Q & A
Ask a question about this product

Product Questions:

Are the mats fire proof in any way?
We do have fire test data available in the Info and Specs tab on this product page.
My mother is elderly and in bad health and very weak and falls. I want a product that will protect her hips and things in a fall. Is this a product you would recommend for that purpose? Or do you suggest a different style?
Or consider the 1 5/8 inch thick tile, also available in a 2x2 ft tile size. This one inch tile is not very soft. Review this blog for fall protection flooring and mat options and comparison.
Can you glue down the mats or use tape?
Tape down is preferable to a glue down installation, however neither are commonly done or needed in most installation. The tiles will generally stay in place depending on the size of the installation. Review our 1x1 meter puzzle mat installation page for more information.
What sort of surfaces can these mats be installed over? Laminate floors? Carpets? And will they damage the floors they are laid over?
Generally any hard flat surface is best, carpeting is not recommended. The martial arts mats will not damage any surface installed over.
I am wondering if there is any data on voc's on these? I would like to order them, but need to know this first.
We do not have any testing on VOC, normally this type of testing is for glues and paints with vapors.
Will the wooden design fade during time or heavy traffic?
The mats may wear some over time, but the wood design is not a print-on, the design is integrated into the color of the surface texture of the top layer of the mat, so this means the design will not fade or wear off more than a solid color mat.
Do you have transitions/ reducers for this product?
These foam mats do not have a ramped edge option.
Hi! we are thinking of using this product for our yoga studio. Can you tell me if your EVA Foam is Formamide free? Thank you!
The manufacturer of our EVA foam tiles has provided us a test that states that one sample of an EVA foam tile passed a test that states the sample was free of formamide. We don't then state that all of our EVA foam tiles are formamide free, and I know that other supplies will promote this. The reason is that all the EVA foam tiles on the market are pretty much the same material. Formamide free EVA tiles can not exist, however the formamide will dissipate over time and one can get a passing test result after a few months of manufacturing. We source from the largest manufacturer of EVA foam tiles in world and I personally visit the factory each year and have much knowledge about the manufacturing process. I'll not state on my site what I know is not true. EVA foam tiles do not contain PVC material and thus no phthalates. Some blogs talk about EVA replacing PVC in foam tiles. This is not true; they are totally different materials. PVC is a plastic. EVA foam comes from the flip flop industry. Thank you David Butler President
I plan on putting these over a pine floor in an older home on pier and beam. Do you suggest some type of breathable vapor barrier between the wood and the tiles?
The foam tiles will act as a vapor barrier. So, if moisture is coming up from the underside of the base flooring, the foam tiles will stop the movement of that moisture at the bottom of the foam tiles.
Do you recommend this thickness of the tiles for a yoga floor?
Yes. We have multiple yoga studios that have found great success with this flooring. Here are a couple for you to see what they say about it. Kismet Yoga and Fitness Platinum Yoga
Would you recommend this product to be placed on a concrete basement floor for jump roping?
This would be a great floor for that purpose.It is designed for jumping related activities and will not only reduce fatigue but provide a thermal buffer from the concrete.

Customer Rating:

We love our Great Mats flooring. We opted for the 1" karate mats because the aerobic flooring was on backorder and we needed it quickly; I was worried, but completely unnecessarily. I am so pleased with my decision. No more joint problems for me or my customers-not from our floors! Our old floors were concrete under carpet. These are NOT slippery, yet easy to pivot and dance on. They are easy to clean. We vaccuum or dust with a swiffer-type dry mop and steam mop twice a week to sanitize. They can also be mopped with soap and water-we just haven't found the need to do that with the steam mop.
Customers who left because of joint issues related to our flooring, are now coming back.
