Whether karate, judo, or aikido are your arts of choice, the online Greatmats store has products that will turn your car stall into a clean and safe space to take your training to the next level.

Home BJJ Mats


Home BJJ Mats are interlocking mats that are an excellent choice for a garage dojo. These versatile mats feature a no-burn surface, and they are 2 x 2 feet and 1.5 inches thick. They also have a 4-foot critical fall height rating and are made of impact-absorbing EVA foam material, making them perfect for mastering takedowns, head throws, or other moves that could lead to injury.

Aside from providing superior support and protection, the mats are waterproof, durable, and double-sided. They are small enough to allow for installation in tight areas like garages, and you can create the custom look of your choice with either a red/blue color combo or a black/gray combo - each of which has a different color on the top and bottom. When disassembled, they’ll even stack up nicely to fit on a workbench or in many garage cabinets. These mats are a mix of quality, versatility, and affordability.

Gym Mats



5x10 foot folding gym mats are the perfect solution for a garage dojo. Their optimal size allows for practicing throws and other moves, and the vinyl covered foam will hold up even after constant use and abuse. These mats feature double-stitched seams and 2-inch wide hook and loop connectors. Connect multiple mats together to create a great space for grappling and other groundwork.

They are lead-free and 6P compliant with XPE high rebound foam. The mats fold for easy storage or transport, and they are easy to clean and maintain.

Home Sport & Play Mat



The Home Sport and Play Mat is among the best reversible home gym mats for a garage dojo. These thick, EVA foam mats provide a flexible consistency similar to rubber while offering more cushion.

They work great in a garage setting, as they are stain-resistant and waterproof. The mats have anti-fatigue properties, reducing excessive stress on ankles and knee joints and allowing longer and harder workouts and training sessions. The mats are shock-absorbing, but they have a firmness that allows for quick and easy movements. The comfortable mats are double-sided and available in numerous colors. There is no need to worry about working out with shoes or boots as the surface is also scuff resistant.

Like the Home BJJ mats mentioned above, they too are 2x2 feet in size, making for easy storage when disassembled.

Roll Out Wrestling Mats



If you want a mat that you can quickly and easily roll out when needed, the Roll Out Wrestling Mat is the one for your garage dojo. These professional quality PE foam mats feature a vinyl top on a smooth surface. Once rolled out flat, they resist curling or rolling back.

They are suitable for martial arts and workouts with a variety of shoes, as they are highly durable. These 5x10 foot mats are designed to provide years of outstanding training, and they are available in many different colors. The quality control standards on these mats are among the industry’s highest, and they feature a 1-year warranty against manufacturer and material defects.

4x8 Foot Gym Mats



Another excellent folding gym mat for a garage dojo is the 4x8 foot gym mat. It is constructed from the best materials on the market, like PE foam, vinyl, and double-stitched seams. Its rugged, lead-free 18-ounce vinyl cover stands up to very rough treatment and heavy use and is 6P compliant for phthalates. Softness and shock absorption make this excellent for multipurpose use.

Safety Wall Pad



Sometimes the practice of martial arts leads to a direct impact against the wall. If space allows, a Safety Wall Pad may be a great addition to a garage dojo. These 2x6 feet x 2-inch indoor stationary pads are intended for direct wall connection.

They are OSB certified, impact rated, and made of polyethylene foam. They are Class A fire rated with PVC vinyl backing. This product contains at least 60 percent recycled, pre-consumer raw material, and it is anti-mildew, anti-fungus, antimicrobial, and antibacterial treated.
