Hello to all,

Before I spend a great amount on puzzle mats for my small school, does anyone have any recommendations of which is best?

Thanks!

Thanks!Check out Greatmats - http://www.greatmats.com/martial-arts-mats.php

Never used this supplier myself but I did have 1/2 inch EVA foam puzzle mats like the ones they sell and they lasted almost 15 years of heavy use and are still going. I think the 1 5/8 inch would be even better.

www.Getrung.com

Prices get cheaper the more you buy - shipping is included - great company to deal with. Had mine a year now and they hold up great!

Order the bags if you plan to transport, and stay away from the red ones.

Contact me directly if you need more info.

Just a note: GETRUNG has 9 mats (1 inch thick) for about $250 (shipping included).

For 9 mats through Greatmats.com, they want $180 for the mats, and $146 for shipping ($326). Be VERY careful to calculate shipping in the final cost before purchasing!

Hi, I'm looking to buy a few mats, just to practice Ukemi on at home, I don't have space inside, so will have to use them on my decking outside. I can generally find either 20mm or 40mm, I guess 20mm is a bit too thin?

9 Circles sell tatami mats, not that cheap but in their sales section they have a few for sale still....

Cheers

If you are putting mats on a concrete slab (ground floor) look to a thicker size, possibly 2"). If it is on a 2nd floor, already carpeted, or an aerobics floor you will be able to use a thinner mat, 1 1/2 or 1 5/8.

Check with the vendor's recommendations.

It's a raised wooden floor

I'd look into the Swain Flexi-Roll. It's a little pricey, but if you are not going to build your own mat, I think overall it's the best deal out there, and convenient, too.

Thanks, but a lot bigger than what I want. I literally think that 3 puzzle mats would do me, and at most I have room for 6.

Thanks anyways :)
