Which Floor Mat is Best Suited for your MA Style?

Choosing the right martial arts mats for your style of fighting isn’t as complicated as it sounds. It really just comes down to what you want to get out of your mat and how you are going to be using it.

Zebra carries a few different styles of mats, each with their own benefits. Depending on which mat you choose, your gym will take on a unique look that speaks to your fighting style. Regardless of which mat you choose, your gym will look all the better.

Follow the guide below to help you choose which floor mat is right for your gym and MA style.

MMA Mats

Our training and professional series mats are the premier example of performance, safety and quality when it comes to MMA mats. They are made with high-quality, multi-density re-bonded foam and are perfect for athletes practicing everything from Jiu-Jitsu to grappling and law enforcement training.

Grappling Mats

Just like our MMA mats, our grappling mats come in standard and elite styles. Both offer great protection during lengthy grappling sessions from Judo, Hapkido, Aikido and other throw-heavy martial arts.

If you are looking for the best quality grappling mat, check out the two-inch thick elite grappling mats in our product section.

Combo Mats

Combo mats are ideal for fighters training in stand-up martial arts styles such as Karate, Tae Kwon Do, Boxing and Kung-fu. They are similar to our grappling mats, but a bit thinner, making them perfect for gyms where grappling is not a priority.

Puzzle Mats

Puzzle mats are interlocking mats that lock together easily, and their seams vanish once the entire set is installed on a gym floor. They are waterproof, made from high-density foam and offer maximum protection to those practicing Judo, Jiu-Jitsu Aikido and Hapkido.

These mats are a simple and affordable way to cover the entire floor of your gym with a high quality, reliable set of the mats. Every puzzle mat that we sell is double-sided, giving you access to two separate colors that allow you to design a gym that suits your style.

Roll Out Mats

The best part about roll out mats is that they are deceivably lightweight, allowing for very quick setup and takedown.

The mats themselves are broken down into sections that can, as the name implies, be rolled up and stored when not in use. Because they are so lightweight, it only takes one person to roll out and roll up the mats, and two people can easily transport them in and out of the gym area.

If you are looking for great quality mats that are easy to transport, easy to store and hardly take up any room when not in use, then roll out mats are for you. They are suitable for many different styles of martial arts and are made from a mix of vinyl and foam.

Folding Mats

Folding mats are not meant to cover the entire surface of a gym’s floor. These are small, portable mats, good for temporary use when some extra padding is needed for practice and demonstration of certain techniques.

Our folding mats come in three sizes and easily fold into 2-foot sections for simple portability and storage.
