Durable judo mats for Jiu Jitsu and MMA, Interlocking BJJ and Jiu Jitsu floor mats

The interlocking Jiu Jitsu Lite 1.25 inch product offers an interlocking professional judo mat designed for ground work training in several martial arts disciplines.

When working on martial arts skill development for Judo, MMA or Jiu Jitsu, the tatami surface texture on these Judo mats is important. With the tatami surface, students will not suffer floor burns. Staying injury-free allows for longer and more intense training sessions.

Each of the 1 x 1 meter Judo mats for sale are reversible, enhancing the value they yield. With a professional construction, the mats provide shock absorbing properties for all martial arts groundwork and workouts.

High Density Judo Mats

Count on our Judo mat products to provide years of high-end performance. These durable 1.25-inch thick foam mats all include a warranty of 1 year. The materials in our martial arts flooring products will provide a safe, cushioned surface for both adult and youth students. For extra protection during throws, consider folding mats with 2 inches of thickness.

The durability in our Judo floor mats comes from closed cell EVA foam. This style of foam does not absorb water, ensuring a long life.

The Judo mats price for closed cell EVA foam is a bit higher than open cell foam, such as is found in carpet padding. But we always recommend closed cell foam over open cell in an athletic studio setting, because the closed cell tiles will not absorb odors, and they’re easy to disinfect and clean.

Shock Absorption Jiu Jitsu Mats

For martial arts studios, having strong shock absorption properties in the flooring is important. Athletes will be able to work out longer without feeling fatigue in their leg and ankle joints when the Jiu Jitsu mat products have the proper level of cushioning.

Our Jiu Jitsu mats are appropriate for martial arts featuring a lot of groundwork, grappling, or throwing, because they have a Shore C material density rating of 35. These mats are a bit softer than mats with a higher Shore C rating of 50 or 55, which deliver a firmness level more appropriate for karate.

No-Burn Tatami Texture

The best Judo mats for barefoot workouts will feature a tatami texture. Our tatami surface Judo mats provide a sure footing surface that’s ideal for these workouts, while also eliminating the possibility of floor burns. This style of product is also great for MMA and grappling work, as the MMA puzzle mats will be extremely durable.

Don’t worry about the tatami surface wearing off with these Judo mat products, as the texture is molded into the tiles. In fact, we’ve designed the tatami surface to withstand street shoes. If boots or heavy shoes are allowed on the mats, some scuffing may occur, but this does not affect performance levels.

If heavy-duty foot traffic is a concern in the martial arts studio, consider Judo mats that make use of a thatch texture surface. However, thatch mats are more commonly used for sports like boxing and taekwondo instead of Judo.

Judo, MMA and Jiu Jitsu

For the martial arts studio that features multiple disciplines, our Judo mats work nicely for Jiu Jitsu or MMA workouts as well. Although our mats for Judo do have some cushioning properties, they retain an appropriate level of firmness, giving athletes a sure footing, whether they’re working with bare feet or shoes. Don’t worry about sinking into the mat and rolling an ankle, either.

These 1.25-inch martial arts mats are a smart choice when performing throws or groundwork. Although our Judo floor mats have a nice level of fall protection, they have not undergone fall-height testing. Greatmats does offer MMA puzzle mats that have a thickness measurement of 1 5/8 inches, which delivers a fall-height rating of up to 4 feet. The extra thickness in these Jiujitsu mats delivers a nice level of additional cushioning and padding.

For disciplines that will involve hard throws, we’d recommend Judo crash mats, folding mats of at least 2 inches in thickness, landing mats, or Pro MMA Smooth mats of at least 2 inches in thickness.

Beyond the martial arts studio, our customers love these Judo mat tiles for use at home in play areas for children. The flooring gives kids a bit of cushioning during rough-housing or play time, but it’s also easy to clean.

Interlocking Puzzle Design of Judo Mats

When seeking an easy-to-install type of Judo floor mats, the interlocking style works nicely. Each piece weighs a little more than 7 pounds, allowing one or two people to handle the installation. Here are some ideas to make the installation process go smoothly.

Start by aligning the Judo flooring mats in the same direction throughout the area where the flooring will be used. Then press the puzzle edges together, either with hand pressure. Aligning the tiles ahead of time will speed the installation process.

These mats work equally well in a wall-to-wall or island installation. For the island installation, use the border strips that ship with each Judo mat tile. The skinny border edge pieces create the smooth edge desired in an island installation.

For a wall-to-wall installation, use the border edge pieces to create flat edges against two of the four walls in the room. For the other two walls, cut the foam tiles with a sharp utility knife and a straight edge, creating a finished edge along the wall.

We suggest leaving a 1/2-inch gap at the edge of the room in a wall-to-wall installation. This puzzle style of Judo mat may expand a bit, depending on the levels of heat and humidity in the room. Should these tiles be exposed to direct sunlight for long periods of time, they may expand too.

Beyond ease of installation, our customers love these puzzle edge Judo mats because they’re easy to disassemble and move from location to location. No adhesive is required to assemble the flooring, meaning disassembly is an easy process. Some of our customers choose this easy-assembly flooring for trade shows for this reason.

Additionally, should an individual Judo mat become damaged, just pull the mat out of the grid and replace it with another piece or flip the reversible damaged mat over and reinstall it if the puzzle edges line up properly.

Color Options for Jiu Jitsu Mats

Some of our reversible Judo mats provide different colors on each side. With the black and gray mats, we’ve created the finished tatami surface on each side, making these mats perfect for martial arts. With the reversible design and color choices, some people will choose to create a pattern in the floor, such as checkerboarding.

Understand that even within the same batch of Judo mat tiles, individual mats may have slight color tone variations. This is a common occurrence when manufacturing interlocking EVA mats. We recommend mixing up all of the tiles in the order before installation to make the color seem more natural.

Greatmats offers a great value and Judo mat price for these interlocking style mats at roughly $2.25 per square foot of flooring area.

Cleaning of Jiu Jitsu Mats

We recommend using a vacuum cleaner when performing routine cleaning on the Pro Taekwondo Mats. Most customers have no problem with this process, but we suggest testing the vacuum cleaner on an extra tile or on an area of the floor that is out of the way before working on the entire floor. Occasionally, heavy-duty vacuums may damage the surface of the tile or cause scuffing.

Water spills are not a problem with our Judo mats, because they are waterproof. Use a dry towel to clean up water or sweat.

For small stains and spots, a small amount of Dawn dish soap works gently on the tiles. For more stubborn spots, we recommend using a diluted vinegar or diluted bleach directly on the surface of the tiles. Apply the solution with a soft scrub brush or a sponge.

Some customers will clean a large area of this flooring using a walk-behind cleaning machine. Again, test the machine on an out-of-the-way section of the flooring to ensure it won’t cause damage.

Martial Arts Mats Tile Size Measurements

Here are the exact measurements of the individual tiles.

- Side to side with border strips attached, 41 by 41 inches
- Outside to outside of interlocking tabs, 40.25 by 40.25 inches
- Outside to inside of interlocking tabs, 39.375 by 39.375 inches
- Coverage per tile, 10.8 square feet

Occasionally, the tiles may not quite match these measurements because of expansion of the materials from heat or excessive humidity.


Product can be damp mopped with hot water. Test your vacuum before use.

Ask a question about this product

Product Questions:

Hi, I'd like to center this mat in the middle of the garage. To that end, do I need ''border'' mats? Or is there a border segment? And how do I purchase the border elements? Will these mats stay in place on epoxy floors? Thanks!
Each tile is shipped with four border pieces, that will created a finished edge, however they are not beveled. Depending on the size of your installation the tiles could potential shift somewhat with side to side movement. Larger installations are more stable.
Will these mats withstand use with shoes or boots?
Not so much, the top surface of this tile is designed for bare feet and soft shoes only.
A lot of mat cleaners specify they are to be used on ''nonporous'' surfaces. Would those types of cleaners be appropriate on these mats, or is there a specific disinfectant that works best for these?
We can recommend pine sol in a diluted fashion with hot water.

Customer Rating:

Great service through the whole process.

Customer Rating:

I chose the 1.25 inch puzzle mats because of their thickness and cushion. I wanted to save not only my ailing joints but also those of my students who had been training on hard flooring for a number of years with me. I like the size, look, and ultimately the feel of the mats when executing techniques and moving at a fast pace. I am more inclined to stay after my own class and work out now as opposed to before when I would just go home and workout after.

These mats were a true life and health saver. I no longer have ankle pain after class, and students do no wince anymore from running on hard flooring. I can concentrate more on technical execution and not worry about how my foot will feel when it hits the floor. They are easy to clean and have excellent traction once the initial oil wears off.

Great company to work with and they have a great product

Customer Rating:

We worked with Pam to get the right number of tiles for our space and it was perfect. They look great and were easy to install. We had to cut the edges of one side a few inches and even that was a simple process. Thank you!

Customer Rating:

I?m am very happy with my new Judo mats. The entire process from ordering to the delivery went great. The quality of the floor was better than I expected.

Customer Rating:

The thickness is perfect for training in Krav Maga, Jui Jitsu, boxing and kickboxing. Even though I steam clean them two times per day, the colors are still vibrant.

Customer Rating:

Pretty decent mats for the price. The only reason I gave these mats a 4 star instead of a 5 is that they are a little hard for a ''judo'' style mat. Other than that they are perfect. I saved a lot of money and they look great too


Customer Rating:

Great customer service and great product. Arrived very quickly as well.

Customer Rating:

These mats are great. We use them for Krav Maga, stand-up techniques, throws and ground fighting. We had them for over three years in one location and just ordered new set for our second location. They don't stretch over time and they stay in place. Great quality product!

Thanks for your patience and your help. We can't wait to try out your roll out mats in the future.

Placed a custom order. The dispatcher of when there time of delivery was incorrect. When I called to confirm time, they said another 3 hours. While on the phone with them, my neighbor tells me the truck is outside. In a rush, they dropped the mats off and my neighbor accepted it. By the time, I got to the mats and checked them, one had a puncture in it. I immediately emailed my contact at Greatmats and her response was, you are supposed to check the mats for any damage before the driver leaves. I followed up about a mat replacement and never received a response back. I actually have 4 more Martial Arts locations and wont be using Great Mats in the future

Customer Rating:

I opened my second location in West Milford NJ and shopped around for mats that were within our start up budget. Personally I have not been a huge fan of puzzle mats!! My current location has 2000sq ft of Zebra mats that are wonderful.....but expensive. Also they tend to had spaces if not shimmed and super tight. I shopped online and found "Great Mats" and purchased the 1 1/4" puzzle mats. The surface was exactly the same as the Zebra mats and when we installed the floor....I was surprised how tight the fit was and no seems. I teach Tae Kwon Do , Krav Maga and kickboxing. Im surpisingly thrilled with the product and would certainly use them again. Master Charlie DiGirolamo Owner Northern Valley Martial Arts Norwood and West Milford NJ 973-506-7200

Mats are perfect, just what I wanted. shipping didnt take lone as the agent told me. Had some issues tho. the agent spelled my company name wrong even after I called her twice to make the changes, she changed the name at the invoice were sent by E-mail only, but on the shipment the company name was still spelled wrong, so at delivery I had to be there to sign for it because the staff supposed to receive the shipment couldnt recognize the name. Also I was told the the mats will be delivered at 15:00 Oclock. and I tried to make it before 15:00 she said sorry but they delivery guys have schedule somewhere else at this time. so we schedule at 15:00 but they called me at 13:20 telling me that we are already there and no one would sing for the shipment, so I had to drive like crazy to get there and receive it myself. this happened because of the agent miscommunication with the delivery guys and spelling the company name wrong.
