Interlocking Karate Mats


Greatmats stocks a wide variety of interlocking foam mats designed specifically for use with karate and the striking arts. These foam MMA puzzle mats fit together like just like puzzle pieces. Installation of our mats is fast, easy, and simple.

Because the tiles for the karate mats are a manageable size, one person can handle installation on his or her own. If a floor expansion is needed in the future, doing so is as simple as adding more mats. Additionally, if a mat becomes worn, replace just that single mat, rather than replacing the entire floor. 

Our 1 inch thick Karate Mats offer high density foam with a smooth surface that is ideal for barefoot and soft shoe footwork, as well as striking moves. These reversible interlocking tiles come in three different color combinations of black/gray, red/blue, and wooden/black.

Complete with four border strips per tile, these interlocking karate mats work perfectly for wall to wall installations. Because they are reversible, customers will gain the maximum use out of each mat, whether seeking a home mat or a karate studio mat. 

All Shoe Type Karate Mats


Greatmats' Pro 20 mm TKD Mat product is specifically designed to meet the needs of the Taekwondo discipline. Our mat featuring a thatch top surface pattern will be resistant to shoes and athletic footwear.

Also reversible, these pro puzzle mats are available in four different color combinations of black/gray, red/blue, green/brown, and black/red.

Pro Sport foam tiles are lead-free, latex-free, and non-absorbent. Their surface is scuff resistant. The tiles are designed to allow students to jump, spin, and kick without causing excess shock on their bodies. These pro karate floor mats are backed by a one-year limited warranty. 

For excellent protection against floor burns, our Judo Interlocking Mats Lite product is a must have. This versatile mat works well for BJJ training area installations, as well as for jiu jitsu, judo, Shotokan, Kung Fu, tae kwon do, and even MMA.

The rugged tatami karate mats surface is designed to prevent floor burns, so athletes can practice in comfort. The reversible mats are non-toxic and highly durable. These tatami mats are also lightweight and portable, so installing them is simple and fast. 

For the ultimate in shock absorption and safety, consider our Grappling MMA Mats. These wrestling mats are a full 1-5/8 inches thick. They offer a 4-foot ASTM fall height rating.

Our closed cell EVA foaming mat products are designed for professional use in mixed martial arts studios. They are the mats of choice for BJJ World Champions Rodrigo 'Comprido' Medeiros and Rafael Ellwanger. These EVA foam karate floor mats come with a one-year limited warranty, allowing customers to purchase with confidence. 

Foldable Karate Mats


Folding gym mats are also available for any karate and striking arts needs. These mats are intended for smaller workout areas and are easy to store. They are a simple way to add increased shock absorption and comfort when practicing high impact activities, like takedowns. 

Our 5x10 foot roll out gym mat product is 1.25 inches thick. It offers the same quality as professional martial arts flooring. Multiple roll out gym mats and flexi roll mats can be combined for a larger surface using releasable vinyl tape. 

The Greatmats 5x10 foot folding gym mats are 2 inches thick and provide impressive impact absorption. A smaller option is the 4x8 foot fold karate mat product, which also has a 2 inch thickness. It lays flat with a reversible design. It is easy to store when not in use. 

Karate Flooring Pole Pads and Post Padding


Don't forget to consider our pole pads and post padding. Quality padding is essential if posts or poles exist in the practice space.

Our padding is available in three different sizes. It is custom made according to the training facility needs. With a wide variety of colors to choose from, some customers incorporate specific color designs in the training space pads for creating a style of branding. 

Caring for Karate Mats


Our karate mats for sale are designed to be easy to clean. Most mats can be cleaned with a damp mop, basic household cleanser, and hot water.

For the best results, sweep and mop the karate floor mats daily. Vinyl top fold out mats can also be cleaned in a similar manner. 

Martial Arts Karate Mats Shipping


We use various shipping methods to send our high quality, professional martial arts flooring products to any facility. Our smaller 2x2 foot interlocking puzzle mat products for home use are often shipped via ground delivery straight to the door.

Our larger 1x1 meter mats and our fold out mats for karate school installations generally ship via common carrier freight delivery. 

Greatmats professional sales team will work to find the best shipping rates to meet delivery deadlines. Because we stock thousands of interlocking mats in our 20,000 square foot Wisconsin facility, we can better control inventory and delivery times to meet customer deadlines. 

Karate Puzzle Mat Installation


Unsure of just how many tiles are required for a particular installation? Or how to create that perfect design? Give the Greatmats Online Floor Plan Designer/Estimator a try.

This online tool will help customers calculate just how much flooring is required, while minimizing the amount of material that may be wasted. It's a great way to maximize savings. 

With our outstanding customer service, free samples upon request, and online tools, Greatmats has the best service in the industry. Our prices will deliver greater value than karate mats wholesalers or karate floor mat suppliers can accomplish.

Before installing pro foam puzzle mats, let them acclimate to the room for 48 hours. Remove them from the carton so they can fully adjust to the heat and humidity conditions. 

One of the major advantages of puzzle mats is that they can be installed without any professional help. Begin with a clean floor and start in a corner of the room. Push the tiles together like a puzzle, working from the corner until full tiles no longer fit. At this point, add edge pieces for a clean island installation, if desired. 

For a full room installation of our floor mat for karate products, leave an approximately 1/2-inch gap around the perimeter of the room. This gap allows the mats to expand slightly, which naturally happens with fluctuations in heat and humidity.

Measure the remaining distance between the tiles and the wall. Then cut the remaining karate flooring to fit using a straight edge utility knife. The tiles fit together like a puzzle, meaning glue or extra tools are not required.
