Tatami is a texture that resembles a common flooring used in or Japanese homes of long ago. In martial arts, a tatami texture mat has a surface texture that resembles or mimics the look and feel of this type of flooring, which is made of thin, long strands of straw.

A tatami surface texture is perfect for grappling, MMA, BJJ, and martial arts styles focusing on ground competition.

Does Grappling MMA Mats Prevent Abrasions?



Grappling MMA Mats are super high-quality mats that are perfect for groundwork and takedowns. They are 3.28 feet by 3.28 feet and 1.5 inches thick and fit together like pieces of a puzzle do. They feature the no skin burn designed tatami texture that is ideal to help prevent abrasions.

The mats also absorb shock from falls and tumbles in-home or studio settings and have a 4 foot ASTM fall height rating. These grappling mats are firm enough for stand up techniques, and their tight-fitting interlocks will not separate - even in the most intense scenarios. There are 4 border strips included per tile.

The mats are mold, mildew, and rot-resistant, and they are waterproof for easy cleaning and disinfecting. If a spill or excess sweat or moisture are present, simply wipe the mats with a dry towel and disinfect.

How Thick Are Home BJJ Mats?



Home BJJ Mats are 1.5 inches thick puzzle mats that are smaller than the Grappling Mats at just 2 feet by 2 feet. While smaller, this product also offers protection from head injuries in falls of up to 4 feet and features the Greatmats’ no-burn tatami texture.

The mats provide plenty of cushioning for grappling and takedowns while being firm enough to prevent injury from sinking into softer mats during quick movements.

This product is great for all martial arts and is specifically sized for easy installation at storage in home environments.

Are Judu Jiu Jitsu Mats Good For Home Use?



Judo Jiu Jitsu Mats are 1.25 inches thick puzzle mats that are 1 meter by 1 meter in size. They will offer more than just a basic home practice mat, as they offer a professional quality surface for Judo, MMA, Jiu-Jitsu, and other groundwork and skill development. They also allow adequate firmness for training on your feet.

Featuring the burn-free tatami surface texture, this allows athletes to train longer and harder without suffering injuries. The mats provide superior shock-absorbing properties for groundwork and skill development, and they are reversible, which increases the value and reduces overall replacement costs. This is an economical alternative to the thicker grappling mats.
