Aikido Mats?

I'm looking for a reliable source to purchase Aikido mats from China, these are usually 1/8th of the price from the USA and the quality is much the same, size is 2x1mtrs and 4ml thick. any leads out there?

Re: Aikido Mats?

Hatashita carries them, but they are not 1/8 the price -- more like 20% less. I've heard that they're not very good.

Re: Aikido Mats?

We have Hatashita mats in our dojo. Quite happy with them but they're not cheap at about $150 CAD each. Should last more than 10 years though....

Good luck,

Russ
