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!

  Good economical mats for home use

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.

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.

I got the tatami pattern because I'm going for a zen modern theme. I was so excited to find this flooring and having it is a huge improvement to the laminate flooring that was in the room before. It's much easier on my joints whenever I do floor exercises or jumping exercises. The only issue I have is that the lines that create the tatami image make the floor slippery when I'm in plank position or trying to do push-ups. I guess I should be grateful for the extra core work!

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 is an excellent product we use for trade shows. Saves your feet and calves a lot of pain from standing long periods of time. We lost our first floor between shows and this is the second time we've purchased it. Great cushioning floor we would purchase again if needed.

The tatami puzzle mats are easy to handle, assemble and cut to fit irregular spots in the training area. We use them as underlay for roll-out mats, and they add a dense and firm but cushioning layer of protecction for our martial arts classes, which involve a lot of throwing and falling.
  My wife's best idea

I have a workout area in my basement that my wife affectionately referred to as my dungeon for many years. I had old carpet which I recycled from our family room over the concrete floor. For quite some time she has encouraged me to make the area look more inviting. Last month I finally listened to her advice and invested in the Tatami foam floor tiles. The area looks like a professional gym now! I use this area of my home daily and I'm certainly glad I purchased this rubber flooring. It was easy to install, it looks amazing, and it makes the best possible floor surface for my workout area.

I have a son with severe autism. He has in home ABA staffing that come into the home. He needed a dedicated therapy space and these where perfect. They are thick enough that we can sit on the floor for hours with him if needed. The floor is safe if he self harms. I love these.

I very rarely do online reviews but these floor tiles are perfect. I installed them over hardwood flooring for a playroom. Used to be a billiards room but times change. I'm thinking about installing them in my unfinished basement, putting up some wall pads and building out a wide open free play space for kids.

I ordered these mats for my daughter to practice taekwondo at home. Her school uses Zebra brand mats and these are very similar. They are great quality, nice and thick, easy to put down...we love them. I just placed a second order to add to the size of her practice area.

Great product, just wished that it was a little more slip resistant. Otherwise, I would recommend it for your training purposes.
