Posted: December 3, 2009

Is your martial arts school offering the best environment for your students? Or could you improve the surface they practice on? Many schools are using soft polyurethane foam mats, which can lead to twisted ankles and unsure footing.

As you know, having a firm footing and confidence in the mat beneath your feet is essential to doing well in martial arts. The flooring needs to disappear from the mind. The firmness of Interlocking foam mats provides comfort and ease of mind so your students can concentrate on their moves and their opponents.

By using interlocking mats, you insure that the flooring stays in place and does not slide, causing your students to fall or injure themselves moving against the floor’s movement. You can floor the entire room with these interlocking mats, or place them in one area of the room, knowing they’ll stay where they’re put.

Thickness is important in martial arts matting. Using karate mats that are at least an inch thick will protect your students ankles, knees and elbows, and allow them to practice what they’re learning safely and without the distraction of an unsafe surface.
