The mats the Petermans use are the Premium Martial Arts Karate Mats - which are rated very high by online customers. The Petermans also find them to be high quality with the ability to stand up to large classes with heavy use.

Harrisburg BJJ and Judo is the largest United States Judo Association (USJA) school in Pennsylvania, as well as one of the largest BJJ schools in Pennsylvania.

Because so many students train at such a high level, having the proper mats is a top priority for owner David Brogan. He discovered Greatmats back in 2012 when he was looking for an economical flooring option that could handle throws, so he went with Greatmats again each time he added more mats - totaling 2,800 square feet.

The mats Brogan uses are the Greatmats' 1 1/2-inch thick BJJ Mats. He likes the price and the 4-foot fall-height rating, as well as their ability to hold up to heavy use and abuse for many years.

“My experience with Greatmats has been more than I expected. Customer service - the value of your product for what you pay for - that's important. When you run a commercial school you try to keep your overhead low. You get the quality without overpaying.''
