Installation

Greatmats Karate flooring in karate studio martial arts matsYou can install the tiles over any hard floor surface. Installation over carpeting is not recommended though, as the tiles could slip. Because of the interlocking design, our karate mats require no special adhesives for installation.

Use the included border strips to create an island installation or to create a finished edge. For a wall-to-wall installation, your mats may need to be cut to fit. If your Karate mats need to be cut to fit, simply use a straight edge and a sharp utility knife to customize the interlocking tiles for your space.

Allow an approximately 1/2-inch gap around the perimeter of your room during installation to allow for mat expansion which can occur with fluctuations in heat and humidity. Keep direct sunlight off the mats if possible as this can heat them up and cause expansion.

Maintenance

Be sure to clean your mats regularly with a vacuum (after testing the vacuum on the tiles to make sure it does not damage your martial arts flooring). Use a damp mop with basic household soap and hot water as needed. Spot clean using a scrubby and a sponge. A walk behind auto cleaning machine is recommended for cleaning this karate flooring in large commercial areas.

All Students are encouraged to develop a strong Champion Spirit that is inside all of us. It just needs to be exercised. To be a champion is not a simple matter of just wishing to become one. It is an endless commitment, sometimes lasting a lifetime. Nobody is born a champion, in exactly the same way that nobody is born an average person. It is up to you to make yourself into one or the other. It starts with courage.

Aristotle said that ”Courage is the first of human qualities because it is the quality which guarantees the others.”

Following closely behind Courage is Perseverance, and it is the Key element that simply means to never quit. Remember that anyone can quit.

Commitment + Hard Work + Positive Spirit = Success.
Optimi Optimorum = Best of the Best.
These are the trademarks of True Champions and the Goals of every Ryoshin-Kan Karate School Student.

Shihan Eric Swick – Dragon’s Den Mixed Martial Arts

Hall-Of-Fame Martial Arts Instructor Changing Lives on Greatmats

By Brett Hart

A friend’s invitation to attend a martial arts class at the age of 12 changed Eric Swick’s life. Now 41, Swick is a 5th degree black belt in Shotokan Karate-Do, 3rd degree black belt in Renzoku Jiu-Jitsu, 3rd degree black belt in Dragon Kenpo, 1st degree black belt in Judo and the owner of Dragon’s Den Mixed Martial Arts academy in Grafton, West Virginia where he also trains in Kobudo and Arnis.

Dragons Den MMA Eric Swick Greatmats

Shihan Swick began his martial arts journey in 1988 under Sensei Dave Burner in Shotokan Karate, Aikido and Arnis and now includes Jiu-Jitsu and Kobudo into his primarily lineup of disciplines.

Real Life Experience

While martial artists train to be prepared for the unthinkable, most never need it. Unfortunately, he has, and it saved his life.

Ten years ago while working as a correctional officer in a United States Penitentiary, Swick was sucker punched by an inmate with a 7-inch shank and ended up being stabbed 13 times while trying to control the attack.

”If it wasn’t for God and my training, I do believe I would not be here today,” Swick said. ”The most horrific thing that I have ever seen is looking into another man’s eyes that was just a few inches away from me that really wanted to kill me. … There is no kind of training that can prepare you for that reality.”

Pushing Forward

Dragons Den MMA Grafton West Virginia Greatmats

The life-changing experience, inspired the Swick to focus more of his time and energy to helping others.

”You win, or you learn. You never lose,” he said. ”If you have the right attitude, there is no such thing as truly losing. Defeat, or losing, is only possible when you give up and quit. Defeat is a state of mind, not a reality. You, and only you, determine whether you lose or whether you had a temporary setback from which you learned more and became stronger. You do not play karate; you study it.”

In 2010, he was named to the Martial Arts Legend Hall of Fame and named the Sensei of the Year by the United States Black Belt Hall of Fame. He is also a two-time Hall of Fame instructor both Jiu-Jitsu and Karate and a Hall of Fame MMA instructor.

Dragons Den MMA Grafton West Virginia Greatmats

With all he’s accomplished, Swick says his biggest accomplishment is seeing his students become teachers of the arts, putting their martial arts training to work in the dojo and their everyday lives, overcoming their fears and becoming adults with success stories.

”I want my students to have the ‘I can, and I will’ attitude,” Swick said. That includes his wife and two kids, who train with him.

While Swick did not compete much early on, his academy has a successful competition team that competes at local tournaments as well as the USA-National Karate-do Federation and Amateur Athletic Union (AAU).

Discovering Greatmats
Swick was impressed by the Greatmats martial arts flooring used at one tournament attended and looked up Greatmats on the web.

He soon ordered Greatmats’ Wood Grain/Black reversible Martial Arts Premium 1 Inch Karate Mats and loves the way they look and perform while enduring classes five days per week.

In 2015, Swick co-founded the Warriors United Tournament Circuit, a growing tournament point circuit open to all styles that includes competitors from West Virginia, Pennsylvania, Maryland and Ohio.

”Tell you the truth, it’s just a great bunch of martial artists having a good time,” Swick said of Warriors United.

So happy with his Greatmats martial arts flooring, Swick and his Warriors United co-founders opted to equip each of their tournament rings with Greatmats flooring as well.

”They’re very tough, and the feel is great,” Swick said.

Three Generations of Black Belts, Adamsons Building Karate Dynasty

Martial Arts Inspiring Story – Janice Adamson – Adamson Karate Studios

Adamson Karate Studios Janice Adamson Greatmats Karate MatsHello my name is Janice Adamson I am part of Adamson Karate Studios out of Indianapolis Indiana. Douglas Adamson is my husband.

We started our karate business in June of 1977. We bought out a bankrupt martial arts school on the south side of the city. It only took 6 months to turn it around, and we moved to a bigger location. We now serve the Indianapolis area with 7 locations!!

You might ask how we can man 7 locations? Well, when we started, it was just my husband and I. We raised 4 sons in the martial arts business. All of them became black belts as well as excellent instructors. Each one of us has a passion about what we do and and love to share this passion with the students we are lucky to have come in the door. Time has raced by and in that time our sons married well!! That is they are married to Black Belts as well.

Adamson Karate Studios instructors Greatmats Karate Mats

Everyone of us work in the family business. In 2015 we hired 3 of our grandchildren to also join in the business. My husband and I have 9 grandchildren; 7 are Black Belts; 2 are still too small too reach that level. There is no doubt that that will happen in the future though.

Adamson Karate Studios Janice Adamson Karate Family Greatmats Karate Mats

We have 3 state level tournaments every year as well as compete in AAU Karate. We have been in the top 3 schools at the AAU Nationals for the past 5 years.

Our students have traveled all over the world to compete. This summer we will travel to Ireland with a large team from Adamson Karate Studio. Over the years, we touched a lot of lives in very positive ways. Leadership is big with us; our students excel at it. I can’t imagine how many we have had over the years but I can say there weren’t too many that I wasn’t proud of.

Back in the late eighties we taught karate classes to kids as well as adults. Most Dojo owners back then only taught adults, thinking kids were not strong enough for the rigorous classes they would teach. Mostly they didn’t want to teach kids.

Adamson Karate Studios kids karate class Greatmats Karate Mats

Our children had to go to work with us. We couldn’t leave them home. We even had a class for them, and others came as well (from the group of adults who also had kids) took class in the dojo.

One day, we decided to have a kids karate tournament with small awards given. We advertised in the local paper. Little did we know who would read that add.

I was at work early one day and two men walked in and introduced themselves as being the representatives of Columbia Pictures! They had a idea to share with me. They had heard about the tournament we had just had and wanted to sponsor the next one we had because they wanted to brake in a new movie they were making ”The Karate Kid,” We did did the tournament as well as demos in every theater where it was showing in the Indianapolis area.

Our school grew so much from just this one visit from Columbia Pictures. We have tournaments each year since then. … We use Greatmats for all our tournaments as well as schools.

It’s Safety First at Brookings Tae Kwon Do

Taekwondo and Karate Blackbelt Equips Growing Academy with Greatmats Martial Arts Mats

By Brett Hart

After nearly 30 years of training in various forms of martial arts, Brookings Tae Kwon Do Head Instructor Mark Anawski has become an advocate for safety.

This fourth-degree American Kaeru-Do Karate (AKDK) black belt, Kukkiwan certified third-degree Tae Kwon Do Black Belt, and Songahm Taekwondo black belt has trained in both International Taekwon-Do Federation (ITF) and World Taekwondo Federation (WTF) styles as well as participating in boxing and football, so he knows a little about combat sports.

Brookings Taekwondo Class Greatmats Martial Arts Mats

A longtime law enforcement professional with more than 16 years of experience as a police officer and deputy sheriff in South Dakota, Mr. Anawski is certified in defensive tactics, pressure point control tactics, Special Weapons and Tactics (SWAT) and firearms and trains other law enforcement officers in many of these areas.

He admits that he didn’t always make the safest choices, but now understands just how important safety has become not only in combat sports but in life in general. He also draws upon his exercise science background, where he holds a bachelor’s degree in health promotion and started on a masters in exercise science and administration, to focus his instruction safe training practices.

”Everything in my life has been trying to be as safe as we can, because I wasn’t,” Anawski said. ”I need my athletes to be able to go to school the next day. I need my athletes to be able to go to work the next day.”

In 2010, he cut back on his law enforcement time to pursue his passion for martial arts and took over the Brookings Tae Kwon Do head instructor position from Masters Tom (6th degree) and Diane Buehr in August 2011.

Starting with just seven active students, Anawski followed Master Tom’s request to keep it traditional, but make Brookings Tae Kwon Do his own.

Brookings Taekwondo Academy Greatmats Martial Arts Mats

”I respect all the other martial arts,” Anawski said. ”I think they’re phenomenal. They’re beautiful. With my law enforcement background, I’m able to take applications from what I teach in taegeuk… (and apply it to) basic fundamental self defense.”

”I’m able to take applications that we teach law enforcement officers in real world situations and how to effectively stop that individual safely for you and for them. There’s no reason why you can’t take that same thought process and apply that to a citizen. … It all starts with being mentally prepared and being aware.”

Shortly after taking over the program, Anawski challenged his students to bring friends to classes. He also began to partner with the area Parks and Rec Department, middle school, daycares and home school programs for physical education classes and to teach about how to address bullying.

”I don’t believe you should ever not allow a student to train because he’s an introvert or he’s awkward or too noisy or he’s too wired up,” Anawski said. ”Martial arts can help them curb that.”

In the fall of 2012, Anawski also began to host open tournaments twice per year, that have drawn in upwards of 150 competitors from nine states as well as Canada. The first year, Anawski rented martial arts mats for his tournaments, and while the price was reasonable, he felt it would be worth investing in his own tournament mats.

Brookings Taekwondo Academy tournament Greatmats Martial Arts Mats

He contacted a couple of different mat companies to get samples of economically priced mats that would be good enough quality for use at tournaments. Under the recommendation of another academy owner, he eventually landed on Greatmats.com and requested samples from them as well.

The Greatmats samples arrived first and Anawski was sold on the 20 mm thick Pro Martial Arts Sport Mats on every level, saying Greatmats ”knocked it out of the park – grand slam – not just with pricing, but with shipping.”

”You’ve got Century and Kwon… I’m sure they’re good quality, but I’m not going to drop $1,000 to $1,200 on shipping alone. I’d rather take that money in the value of the mat or save my self that money if I can.”

Anawski partnered with another school in Minnesota, and the two academies purchased 400 of the 1×1 meter interlocking reversible mats – 200 red/blue mats for Brookings TKD and 200 black/gray mats for the other academy.

”It’s great,” Anawski said. ”Those mats – I can take them and travel with them. Take a stack in the back of my truck. It takes a few minutes to set up and take down. They’re lightweight. They’re perfect for that.”

If he needs a little extra padding for anything, Anawski said he just doubles up the the mats, and they work great.

And now, instead of renting mats, he’s able to rent out his mats for other area tournaments when he’s not using them.

Before Anawski knew it, Brookings Tae Kwon Do had grown to 50 students. In September of 2015, Anawski was visiting with a man who had trained in Shotokan karate, and he mentioned that he had his eye on a 5,300-square foot climate-controlled storage unit with the perfect location to turn into a dojang, but was concerned he wouldn’t be able to afford it. As it turned out, that man happened to own the building and was in the market of selling it to the right person for the right cause.

Impressed by what Anawski was doing in the community, the man determined he was that right person with the right cause and they came up with a price both men were comfortable with.

In February of this year, the school was ready for a space of its very own and Brookings TKD purchased the building, storage business and naming to it.

Anawski converted 3,000 square feet of the building into a training area and left the rest to continue operating as storage units.

”I’m not deserving of this,” Anawski said. ”I wasn’t the best kid in high school. We’ve been absolutely blessed with where we’re at and what we’ve grown to. We’re well over 100 students now.”

Once again, he was in the market for mats and checked back with Greatmats to see if it was still the place to go to get the best bang for his buck.

brookings-tkd-dojang

Indeed, it was, and he ordered just over 200 of the Martial Arts Karate Premium 1 inch thick mats in a reversible wooden/black color. The majority of the dojang floor utilizes the wood grain colored side of the tiles while the sparring zones are separated out with the black side.

”We wanted something that looks natural with our building,” Anawski said. ”It looks incredible. They’re so nice, and the transition colors that I love.”

Anawski was particularly impressed by the gray dense foam center having a thick black or thick wood surface color on the outside.

”Over time when things do start wearing out, we’re not going to fall into that gray,” Anawski said. ”The center grey density is fantastic. It is exactly what we need. I’ve been at different school with mats, and these mats are so comfortable and they clean so well. … From start to finish they’ve been fantastic.”

When not holding classes, Brookings TKD will occasionally host birthday parties on the mats.

”They hold up really well against stains,” Anawski said. ”We had Hi-C, red pop, on the mat and it cleaned up. Food… That was everywhere, and we wiped it up. That was fantastic.”

While he was updating his dojang flooring, Anawski also purchased four 4×10 foot by 2 inch thick folding gym mats to practice hapkido and judo throws.

”Those are incredible,” Anawksi said. ”For the price we paid, the value and the quality, they’re outstanding.”

Now, with the help of the Brookings, South Dakota, area community and Greatmats, Brookings Tae Kwon Do has seen exponential growth and has its very own ADA regulated dojang with a welcoming earth tone Asian American feel.

”We really wanted to create an opportunity for training for anyone,” Anawski said. ”The quality of the mats is beyond impressive. They were everything we wanted, and then some.”

1 inch Martial Arts Mats for Karate and Yoga

By Brett Hart

There’s no doubt about it, 32-year martial arts veteran David Younglove knows the importance of a proper foundation.

Beginning his training as a martial artist in 1983, Mr. Younglove earned his first blackbelt and began teaching Karate by the age of 17. A Minnesota state champion, Mr. Younglove joined the U.S. Marine Corp in the early 1990s where he trained Thailand Marines in hand-to-hand combat.

”We taught on just carpet over cement in those days and if you fell, it was just terrible,” Mr. Younglove said. ”The first generation of mats… we put in martial arts schools were just terrible. They were very hard. They were very grippy on the feet.”

Despite these less-than-ideal training surfaces, Mr. Younglove continued to pursue his passion for martial arts and, from 2012 to 2014, he was the top-ranked North Central Karate Association (NCKA) competitor in traditional form for 40-49 year olds.

USA Karate & Yoga Studio David Younglove kids karate class Greatmats Karate Mats

In July of last year, this sixth-degree blackbelt finally found the perfect martial arts flooring on Greatmats.com – 1 inch thick foam karate mats. These 1×1 meter interlocking foam tiles, designed to look like wood floors, have a leather-like, waterproof surface that provides both proper stability and cushion.

”I’ve tried many of the others in all of our different schools – and (talked to) other owners,” Mr. Younglove said. ”These are by far and large the best that I’ve found.”

”I went to different martial arts owners and worked out on their floors. I looked at the Swains; I looked at the Zebra mats and all the different ones, and I got some samples.”

After inspecting a free sample of the Greatmats Karate Mats, Mr. Younglove purchased three tiles and snapped them together for a test.

”(I) just did a few moves on them and decided by far and large, it had the most support, but also had the most cushion at the same time,” Mr. Younglove said. ”It works out great.”

USA Karate David Younglove teaching karate Greatmats Karate Mats

In fact, he liked them so much that he not only purchased them as his dojo flooring at USA Karate in Rosemount, Minn., but also for his yoga studio in the same building.

”I have a dual studio,” Mr. Younglove said. ”We incorporate a full yoga program with our full martial arts program. At this facility we have two classrooms. Kids can be taking karate class and mom can be taking yoga class simultaneously. I put it in the yoga side and, to my knowledge, we’re the only yoga studio that has a padded floor. We’re constantly on our knees and on our elbows and a lot of our population is 40 and over. We have some 70 year olds taking class. It is very gentle on the joints. It also really challenges your balance.”

Mr. Younglove noted that it took about six months of regular use to fully break in the flooring, which was a bit slippery to start, but it was well worth the patience, knowing that he offers yet another tool in helping his students build the best foundation in self-esteem with a positive and safe learning environment.
