We got this mat for my son and husband doing jiu jitsu and aikido practice at home. The mat is a great size for small bodies tumbling around but is a little tight for my 6'2" husband to do forward and backward rolls. When it arrives it is a bit stiff and we think it will break in soon. It also came with an epoxy smell that we let air out in our garage before bringing it into the house. All in all it is well made and a great price.
Bought this because they were advertised as "home wrestling mats". Even though a person could probably use them for that purpose these mats are much harder than real wrestling mats. Not really what I was looking for although the quality of these mats are good they are not true wrestling mat quality and/or consistency.
The wrestling mats I ordered from FlooringINC are awesome! I have a 2.5 car garage with very little room, so storing these mats is very easy and convenient. When I’m done using them, the mats are rolled up and put in the corner of the garage, out of the way.
I train a group of police officers so they can have an active and more healthy lifestyle. The wrestling mats allow us to have 4 people grappling at once. The officers work on takedowns, ground control, and other grappling techniques. They wear their duty belts and use blue guns to work on gun retention as well. The mats have not shown any signs of wear or punctures from the hard plastic holsters attached to the belts. We also do our core workouts, use kettle bells, and jump rope on the mats. They are still holding up.
I am probably going to buy one more, just so I have a little more room to work with.
Attached are pictures of me rolling with the only Dalmatian I know that is a police dog.
Title says it all. Very pleased with the Quality of this large mat. Purchased 3 for my son to practice his martial arts, tumble, fall, etc. Highly recommend & would purchase again.
My son has this mat in his bedroom and uses it to drill wrestling and jiu jitsu! He loves it.
I have a small home gym where i laid out 3/8" Tight-Lock Rubber Tiles. For stretching/Yoga/roller work i purchased two of these wrestling mats for so my wife and i can use them at the same time. They roll up very easily and are tucked away in a closet. Excellent and sturdy product.
Love it! Worth the investment! Great mat to use with the TRX!
The mat is great and works great for my three boys to practice on. The mat is too skinny to work on moves such as reversals and granby rolls. The mat would need to be at least 9' by 9' this would give them the ability to have room to work on moves and stay on the mat.
This mat is good for doing yoga or exercises in place. over all we like the mat and will be ordering another one to give us the ability to do more moves.
I would recommend this product to my friends which I have. delivery was in a good timely manner.
I am using this for alpaca and goat shearing. It has good grip on the bottom, and is not slippery on top. Light and easy to move around, and also very easy to clean off afterwards.
We were thinking double carpet pad with carpet on top.
These things are made out of a very strong material on top(hypalon like) and a very firm pad(1 5/8").
Our is on top of a concrete slab and you can jump up and down without even feeling the concrete.
Install/cut was easy. Just cut the top cleanly with a razor utility and straight edge. Then do a few more times going deeper each time. After the initial cut you dno't need the straight edge anymore.
There is enough friction on rough concrete that we needed no tape. It also fits perfectly into our 12'x12' space...slightly smaller so needed a cut.
I did not notice a strong smell like other said and I am normally sensitive to that.
We use them for Taekwondo class. They are just the right cushion and firmness.
We are using your flooring as part of our office building amenity gym free to tenants. Nice warm up area. Durable, attractive, and most importantly easy to clean! Exactly what we needed!
This is by far the best mat in the market. It is thick and high quality. Easily to roll and put away.
These mats are perfect for our in-home gym for stretching, yoga, high intensity exercises with a lot of jumping, everything! We love them!
Excellent customer service, have the mats set up in the living room by the boxing equipment and they work well for sparing. Fold up nicely when not in use. Excellent product.
Very happy with this mat! Durable and great price for its size. Very fast delivery. Box arrived in perfect condition. Kids are using for gymnastics and I'm using for Karate and Jujitsu. Plenty of cushion for tumbles and throws!!!
Great mat and actually was delivered sooner than expected. I was worried it would not be thick enough but it I assure you it is and does the job it's meant to do. I'm 5'10 185 lbs and the guy roll with is about the same. I put this in my garage with the intention of doing some light jiu jitsu but there are definitely times where things get a little more intense when scrambling for better positions and the mat absorbs the impact very well. I probably wouldnt recommend doing any hard throws or tosses but to be honest I think the mat is quality enough to take it. Awesome mat, thank you.
I bought two of these for using in my shop with my sons, specifically for wrestling practice. They are lightweight, seem durable and great for our application. The only negative I would say was concerning shipping. They arrived in poorly taped boxes too small for the mats. One mat had a small chunk taken out but since it was on the bottom it really didn't matter.
My grandkids love these. They were a gift from us grandparents on the east coast so we haven't actually seen them but my son said they are huge and thick-good quality that will hold up to our jiu jitsu practicing grandchildren.
The mat is sturdy with a durable vinyl top layer that has good traction for barefoot use and is easy to clean. The foam provides excellent cushioning yet is firm and supportive. It rolls up easily for storage and comes with an ample strap to cinch it.
I use this over a concrete floor for body weight workouts, stretching, yoga, and some tumbling. I also stand on it while I'm doing exercises with dumbbells but I'm not dropping heavy weights on it. The 5 x 9 size is good - lots of room but light and easy to move.
I'm very happy with the quality and performance of the product and the price was reasonable compared with others I've seen advertised.
