''(The mats) are very light and very easy to move,'' he added. ''The surface is the same surface as the tatami mat, only much lighter. So you can use and you can change the configuration of your gym without major problems.''

''One of my favorite things using Greatmats is that you never will experience any rug burns when you're training. It's amazing to me how fast you can move on the Greatmats Grappling product. ... The surface makes you feel that you can move in any direction any time you want.''
