Good economical mats for home use
Self-installed in Home - Living Room
from Idaho wrote...
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 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.

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.
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.
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!

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!
Exactly what I was looking for

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.

This floor is exactly what we were looking for. We no more than ordered it...and it was here in just a couple days. Installation was easy (except our room wasn't square making for lots of cutting)...but it came out fantastic. We did install over carpet pad and it is working out great for us and makes a super comfortable floor to jump on. We still haven't figured out the "door thresholds" to go from rubber flooring to tile floor and rubber flooring to carpet but think we will end up making our own "transitions" out of the extra rubber. Super product, great company, highly recommend.

I bought 3 of these for a workout mat. It was enough cushion to enable me to do situps comfortably on a concrete floor. It also fits neatly under my couch which I tuck my feet under while doing situps. Very happy with the purchase.

It was super easy to install and setup in my garage. I will buy more later definitely but 16 squares was plenty to get started. These are easy to pick up and stack as well if you wanted a floor that was not always going to be there for say your living room. Work out take it apart and slide it under the couch or stack it back in the ottoman
Great for floor workouts

We used this to cover half of our garage home gym. We have a full-sized bowflex, free weights with heavy storage rack, kettlebells, and medicine balls on this flooring and there is no issue with gapping or coming apart at the seams. Super easy installation, just use your hands and fingers to press puzzle pieces together. Very sturdy, thick flooring that's also easy on the tailbone, knees and elbows. for floor exercises. There's no smell like with the rubber flooring. It retains heat very well and never feels cold, even on concrete floor. Highly recommended!!
Great for Martial Arts

I have had these mats in my garage now for almost a year. They are great. Excellent quality. They do absorb impact quite well because I have fallen while working on spin kicks and I have not broken anything or had serious injuries. I really think these are very good. I've just purchase a few more to make my surface a bit bigger - so that I don't miss the mat and hit the concrete the next time I fall during a spin! Great customer service too.

These tiles fit perfectly into the ones I already had installed in my workout room. However, I found them to be very slippery and only use them on the perimeter of the room as they would not be suitable for working out or martial arts (barefoot) due to the slippery nature of the tiles.
So far so good

I bought 25 sq. foot to lay when I train BJJ with the family. Admittedly they don't care to train a lot so I honestly haven't used the mats a lot so far. That being said they are far better than the Gold's Gym mats I had to constantly buy and rebuy time and time again from Wal-Mart. These are far thicker and far better constructed visibly. They are plenty comfortable ....again so far so good but I haven't really had time to break them down 100 times to see if the fit stays true and the comfort stays soft. Perhaps later I'll remember to come back and update. These seem like a great deal regardless for someone like us who needs more than the Wal-Mart pads but don't have the room or cannot justify buying actual roll up wrestling mats.
Great quality but a bit slippery for yoga

Our home gym has rubber roll flooring. We needed an area for stretching, yoga and Pilates. Installed a 10 x 6 area. Over the rubber floor Looks great. Awesome support and cushioning. Slippery for yoga so use a 1/4 inch mat on top which works well. Love the textured look.
Great to place onto a hardwood floor for yoga, med

Great multi-use tiles

I've been looking for a multi-use floor covering for a while and am very happy with these. I have a 6'x6' square of tiles. At night I sleep on them, as they are softer than the floor but still great for my back. During the day I do yoga on them and they work great for that too. Highly recommended.
perfect and good deal

These were a great solution for the 10 by 11 room that I use as a den and workout room. They were easy to install and very comfy to workout on. It is not good to set light weight furniture on them
