Customer Reviews for: Pro Taekwondo Martial Arts Mats 20 mm
Looked around online at all my options, with a good price point and reviews I chose these. Installed in no time and looks great, just what I was looking for to put in the garage for my training bag for my son and me to practice TKD. Received top notch customer service and was able to find the best shipping option for this product. Will be a five star product once the long term durability is tested.
Overall quality of these mats is good, The foam is firm yet allows for enough cushioning. The puzzle pattern is precise so that the mats are interlock without any gaps. The only and biggest downfall of these mats is the surface. Although having a surface pattern that should avoid slipping, the mats are in fact very slippery if used barefoot - which usually is the case when practicing martial arts. Especially in warmer seasons and during intense training when feet and hands get sweaty, the mats do not provide enough friction to allow for proper grip.
I bought these mats for my children as they have been in TKD for many years now. We wanted to be able to train at home as well as at school and decided to convert the garage into a studio. Thanks Greatmats for a superior product at a GREAT price, you made our wish come true. The service was great, shipping was quick and I could not have asked for a better experience. I spent about an hour or less installing the mats by myself, it's so simple even a caveman could do it. Two thumbs up!!!!
Hi my name is Sinchi: Mike Akens.. owner and general manager of the Rumi Maki Kickboxing & Fitness Club in Dumas Texas. I would like to let everyone in the martial arts community know how satisfied I am with my new gym mats. First off..I should mention that the PRICE I paid for my new floor mats was SPOT ON.. a real bargain. Pryor to buying my mats..I researched other companies and compared the cost.. but Great mats and them beat.. Not only in price...but in quality and delivery cost and service. I live a small town outside of any major city.. but I still received my gym mats in RECORD time... All can say is Thanks Great Mats... you guys are the best.!

Very helpful staff. We wanted mats that we could run on with athletic shoes for LE and Military type training. So far everyone seems to like their absorption during low height throws, takedowns, breakfalls, etc. Not too soft like so many roll-up mats we have sampled. If they hold up they will be well worth the price. We have bought very expensive mats that did last for 10 years but we could replace these every 3 years and still be ahead and have newer mats on the floor all the time.
It has been a great experience doing business with you, great customer Service and good quality Mats

I am a defensive tactics instructor at a prison in Texas. These mats were recommended by one of my instructors. The service we recieved was amazing, the staff was very attentive to all of our needs. The product itself is very easy to set up and breakdown. The mats are light but durable, but they absorb alot more shock than one would expect for the size. All around great experience in purchasing these mats!
These mats were perfect for us for a studio that was used for martial arts instruction but also for dance. They're durable, convenient, and an excellent value. Would definitely purchase these from Greatmats again (in fact, this is our second purchase!)

The martial arts puzzle mats went down very easily. We do tai chi and applications (sparring). Some mats had to be cut for fit. A "box cutter" works okay, but I found a saber saw smooth cut blade worked more easily. They're a lot easier to fall on than a sub-floor! Pat Kessler
This is our sweatshop floor. It is Greatmats martial arts floor 40" x 40" lock in mats and they work wonderful! Dewey Wendt
You can cut corners on some things, but in a martial arts studio, flooring ISN'T one of them. After exhaustive research on flooring/mat options, obtaining samples from several sources, and getting advice from the friendly, helpful folks in customer service at Greatmats, we feel we absolutely got the best price possible from Greatmats and we didn't sacrifice quality, either. We purchased 1,500 sq ft of this mat and are using it for both martial arts and Zumba fitness. Greatmats literally saved the day: We realized we had a problem (i.e. we goofed and assumed we could cut a 40x40" tile in half and get TWO 20x40" tiles to interlock. Didn't think to ask about that. It doesn't work.) So a mere 3 days before our Grand Opening, we were 8 mats short. Greatmats was able to expedite those 8 mats to us and we opened on time without an unsightly "empty space". *Whew! Thanks!* Very happy, thank you. - Mrs. Gary Johnson, Guardian Martial Arts Studio, Harrodsburg, Indiana
These are "great" mats. We are using them teaching armed and un-armed combatives including takedowns and break falls. I would not use these for aerial throws but for falling and rolling the're great. They also stand up well to shoes and boots and don't take any skin if you slide on them. We lay them down and take them up for each class and so far they have held up really well. I'm very happy with our choice.
Mats are extremely easy to install Proved to very durable so far Very convenient to move Easy to mop off Firm enough for stand up, soft enough for grappling training Good traction without being too abrasive to need rash guards while grappling
The mats are working out very well for our classes, very easy to install and the kids and adults love having mats to fall on vs the floor. Very professional delivery service!

Excellent service, price and product. would definitely use Great Mats again. Easy install Delivered hassle free!
The product is fantastic! Thick enough to provide a safety net for tumbling and throws, not so thick that it removes the need for good technique. The material is pebbled to provide improved traction between foot (we practice barefoot) and mat but not so pebbled as to be a sensory hindrance. Perfect mats! They fit the space we use exactly and they look really, really sharp! There was a hiccup in the delivery of the mats due to a problem with the trucking outfit that Greatmats uses. Some back and forth over the course of about 3 hours finally resolved the issue favorably for me. I made my comments to the people involved so that my issue might not come up for someone else in the future. I have no hesitation in ordering a couple more mats to keep on reserve. They're just really good mats! Thanks.

Great mats...feel good, the install was a breeze. Really pleased with them. Shipping seems overly expensive though...cost 1/2 of what the mats cost...But the product itself is GREAT!
My son is a double black belt and is working on his third. He absolutely loves the mats,inviting friends over when he is home from colege. The only problem I have is that now I can't park in the garage.
