Taekwondo Mats

Excellent for tournament competition or practice, our 20 mm Taekwondo mats are built to last in professional TKD studios.  Double checker top surface pattern is incredibly durable and can withstand years of abuse even with athletes in athletic shoes and other types of footwear.

Designed to the standards of other, more expensive competition martial arts mats, these TKD mats are an inexpensive alternative.  A one-year manufacturer’s warranty accompanies these top of the line interlocking foam puzzle mats.
Taekwondo mats can be custom ordered in any color combination with a 200 mat minimum order (approx 2000 square feet).  Each mat is shipped with four border strips attached for ship protection and installation convenience.  This mat is ideal for wall-to-wall installation but does not require adhesives.   This interlocking puzzle mat is also great for tournament use.
These foam mats are also excellent for other activities including boxing, aerobics, or even play areas for kids.  Lay them in your basement directly over concrete for a soft, more usable living space in your home.
Each tile measures 40×40 inches.  They are waterproof and lightweight for easy maneuverability.  Bring these TKD mats anyplace you’d like to practice or compete. 
As a rule, you will want to keep this flooring in an area that does not get lots of direct sunlight as this will cause the high density EVA foam to expand and contract.
