Description - Tatami Tiles offer an extra thick interlocking foam mat product designed for use in areas where shock absorption is important. Tatami floor tiles also provide a unique surface appearance that is meant to mimic Japanese tatami mats. Each Tatami Tile is made of kid approved EVA foam which is water proof, stain resistant, and easy to clean. EVA also acts as an excellent insulator against sound and temperature transmission.
Note: Foam products can be punctured by sharp animal nails, rough use, high heels, and moving furniture.
Material – Durable closed cell EVA foam.
Size – 24" x 24" (Note: Tiles do overlap 1” where they lock together)
Thickness – 7/8 Inch (~19mm)
Weight – Each tile weighs approximately 2.0 Lbs.
Recommended Uses – Tatami Tiles are designed to provide a safe and shock absorbing training surface for a variety of mixed martials arts. Some ways these tiles have been used before include: As Grappling Mats, As Judo Mats, As MMA Mats, As Jiu Jitsu Mats, As Karate Mats, As Taekwondo Mats, Goza Mats, Aikido Mats, and as General Dojo Flooring.

  • Tatami Tiles are stocked and ready to ship via FedEx.
  • Tatami floor tiles typically ship the same day or the next business day and deliver within 2-7 business days depending on your location.
  • An email will automatically be sent to you with your tracking information as soon as your interlocking mats ship and your tracking information becomes available.

  • Tatami tiles are easy to clean and maintain. These shock absorbing foam tiles are constructed of durable closed cell EVA foam which means liquids cannot penetrate the surface of the tiles.
  • If the tatami tiles do get something spilled on them or appear dirty, all that is necessary to clean them is to do a quick wipe of the foam floor surface with a damp cloth and your Tatami Mats will look like new.

Installation of interlocking tiles is very simple and typically done by the consumer. Typical installation of these tiles is as follows:
  • First, clean your sub floor so it is free of all dirt, grease or debris.
  • Start in one corner of the room with a corner tile and add border tiles outward along the adjacent walls. Add center, corner, and border tiles where you see fit.
  • When coming up to an opposite wall, make sure you cut the tiles to fit the area leaving a gap that’s roughly the thickness of the tiles being used to account for expansion and contraction of the floor tiles in varied temperature ranges.
Note: When piecing interlocking tiles together, adhesives are usually not used since the weight of the locked together product is usually enough to keep the floor tiles from moving. However, if you do experience movement and would like to ensure that the tiles do not slide at all, some double-sided tape or mat tape can be used around the perimeter of the installation to prevent any movement.

Highlights

  • Designed for Martial Arts Training Studios.
  • Super Thick and Shock Absorbent.
  • Reversible and available in 4 total colors.
  • 2 edge pieces included with each tile.
  • Tiles can be lain in the same direction or crisscross.
  • Waves in tiles may not line up if laid in the same direction.
  • Note: Removable corner can become a choking hazard.
I use them as work kneeling pads

I'm a cabinetmaker & finish carpenter and have never liked kneepads. These 2x2 pads are perfect for work. They are very lightweight but dense enough and thick enough to cushion your knees well. And the price is unbeatable. I have 8 pads, 32 square feet that cost about $50 total versus well over $120 for anything comparable.

Good economical mats for home use
4/5 Tatami Tiles
Russ from Idaho

I ordered 120 square feet of the 7/8" tatami mats for portable home use in my living room. My family trains karate (stand up striking), jiu-jitsu (ground work grappling), and general calisthenics fitness on these.

The kids love leaving them out to play on and even watch movies on. They've also found that the puzzle edges allow you to build many boxes and triangles creating excellent forts! So, that's an unexpected side benefit ;)

We've had them for about 2 weeks now. Overall I am satisfied. I was able to order these brand new with shipping included for less than some local sellers were selling used mats... so the price is excellent.

The quality is good. Puzzle interlocks are cut very well and fit nicely together. The tatami finish has a nice texture.

Out of the box the tiles are dry to the touch but have a slippery feel. You would not want to do any serious stand up striking/foot-work on these until they've been used a little bit to wear off the slippery. This doesn't take long though, after only a couple grappling sessions they feel like normal. I think just wiping them down with some old towels would do the trick.

The mats provide a lot of cushion. They are not too marshmallowy to stand on, but you can definitely feel them squish a bit under foot. Rolling/wrestling on them is very comfortable. I specifically picked the tatami version over the 1" grappling mats because I expected the tatami mats to be a bit more compressed and less squishy than the grappling mats, making them more useful for stand up work.

They mats are secure, the only time I've had them come loose is when we are grappling along the outer edge and someone pushes out hard on the outer row, then the puzzle pieces can pull free, but it's a quick and easy fix and none of the puzzle edges have ripped.

The surface is not terribly strong. We have to be careful to pick them up after use and make sure all pets have well-trimmed claws if they might wander across them. Ours have a few small claw holes in them after a couple weeks of ownership until we realized we needed to pay a bit more attention to this. I do not believe these would stand up very well to any type of foot wear. If these were being used in any sort of self-defense class I'd be concerned about people wearing any sort of shoes on them. Note: I dont think the manufacturer intends these for anything other than bare foot use... just wanted to point it out to potential buyers.

The size is excellent for home use because the 2'x2' squares are easy to stack and store without taking up an unusual amount of space. For comparison I often train in a dojo that has the 40" square Century puzzle mats. The Century mats have a stronger surface and are harder overall but would be difficult to store in a home environment due to their size. I believe rubberflooringinc.com sells a similar type mat that is comparable to the Century mat and I would probably favor those in any sort of commercial space because they might be a bit stronger.

Overall, I'm very happy with these for recreational home use. I may likely order more in the future for a bit more mat space and if a few get damaged I would order replacements.

We just purchased these and they look great in my basement that I use as a gym! A little slippery with stability balls but just put down a mat underneath if it's an issue. Love the look, feel and that their is no rubbery smell and so easy to install!

Awesomely simple!

I installed 120 ft.² of these tiles (30) for my concrete basement floor so that I could do my T25 and P90X3 workout programs without joint pain. These absorb the jumping impact so well without being too cushy to simply walk on. They feel firm to walk on, but when you jump, they compress and rebound quite nicely so that you don't "sink in" and lose your balance during one-legged complex movements. Get some! Your joints will thank you!

Tatami Tiles Work Great

I bought these with the though of covering a few areas for exercise and general purpose. They worked so well, I decided to cover the entire floor with them for my wife's workout room. They are very comfortable, have a good amount of grip with shoes or barefoot. However, I would not recommend socks. If I ever need more flooring like this, I will definitely get more!

Work Out Flooring

My knees were tired of doing Insanity and Plyometrics on my concrete garage floor. I got these tiles and the installation took about ten minutes. I did not have to do any kind of cutting so installation times may increase. For me it was more of a plug and play installation. They look great and the stress on my knees is WAY less! I was worried that they would be too "squishy", but they were just right for any type of workouts. I would not place them under heavy equipment. They are definitely worth getting for a workout area and I am planning on getting more for the kids playroom.

My sons karate dojo has tiles like these and I figured why not get some for home. They are great and now we can practice at home without Mom getting too mad or worried.

Great Value, Great Performer
5/5 Tatami Tiles

I needed something inexpensive to effectively cushion 50 to 80lb dumbbell drops during workouts. Therefore I use this product differently than most would, as I stack the tiles thick enough to sustain drops as high as two feet or more from the bench. And boy do they work! Before I found rubberflooring, I looked directy at products associated with gym equipment and the prices were at $1,000 or more for rubber flooring mats. I paid just over $50 here for 8 tiles and problem solved. And they look nice too. Thanks Rubber Flooring!!

Great Product!!

This company is simply awesome. From the free samples to the online measuring assistant they are top notch! The Tatami tiles are great and have no smell which was my biggest concern. Just be careful if you plan on using weights as it'll leave an indent. What I did to counter this issue is bought a 4 pack of the black foam tiles sold in walmart for like $12 and that is where I keep my weights. As for practicing standup martial arts its perfect!

Great multipurpose pad.

Very durable mat for use in the kids play area. Easy to clean and can get very creative with pattern design. Also, a very cost effective means of shadowing a tool box. The dense foam is great for outlining tools and the contrasting color makes it obvious when a tool is missing. As a mechanic, it's an easy way to keep track of tools. Super product and a great value.
