Re: Dojo Floor

Charles, what is the size of the mats? The dojo I am guilding is going to be small. It will not be heavily used. Meaning not a lot of people on the floor each day. Usually 10 or less. Are you saying the tatami mats will not hold up under some MA practice? Or that they will not allow for safe practice? Just curious why they are not suitable for MA.

To answer Mary's question, this will be permanent. I am hoping that when one steps into the dojo, it will have the look and feel of Japan. But the mats will stay....not moved except for cleaning....
