Hi John

Good to hear from you

We are very pleased with the 100 1m x 1m jigsaw mats we purchased from you 8 years ago, and the other 25  2 years later (to expand the training area).

They are hard wearing, robust and very good for movement during class – not slippy, no feet burns etc.

We also do a lot of self defence which involves throws , take downs etc. and we find them adequate for this also.

Indeed I have recommend both them and you to others.

They are still doing the biz, and no need to replace them yet.

We had a good look round the internet before placing our order for 128 Judo Mats & 2 Trolleys with John @ Martial Art Mats, mainly due to the great quality and price being several hundred pounds less than other quotes we had.

Communication and support throughout our purchase was excellent, and we are really happy with the quality of the mats and trolleys. I would happily recommend Martial Art Mats and use them again.

Hi John – The 10 Tatami Judo Mats we had from you are doing very well – they’ve fitted perfectly with the ones we already held, and the Crash Mat you supplied has come in very useful also. It’s good to get kit from someone who not only knows the gear inside-out, but has your years of experience in using it as well.

No reason to go elsewhere while you’re in the business!

The absorbency, non slip properties and looks of the 38 Club Judo Mats you supplied us are very good, the Super Heavy Duty Mat Trolley is handy too.

The 32 Club Judo Mats you supplied me have just the right combination of firmness and shock absorption, they are great, hardly any slip at all, soft enough to make falling fun but not so soft that turning quickly is tricky.

I feel the balance between a soft landing and a sturdy enough surface to train on safely has been reached.

The Super Heavy Duty Mat Trolley has come in very useful too.

Thanks for the Crash Mat and Jigsaw Mats, we opened them yesterday at the classes. The kids were so excited to use them and we got to do so much more. Great service, I’m sure we will be in contact again.

Dear John,

Just a quick note to say that the Club Judo Mat arrived yesterday, as promised, and is perfect for my needs for rope jumping training. The density and hardness are just spot on to cushion the shock of my 85 kg landing on one foot repetitively, without being too spongy.

Many thanks for the advice and discussion on the phone. It was refreshing to stumble across a company that tried to offer help and advice, impartially, without just trying to push a product.

Best regards,

“The mats I bought off you were perfect and very good value. I will definitely come to you if I need any more, and I have already been recommending them to my friends.”

Hi John,

Just a quick note to let you know the mats have been delivered this morning…. really appreciate all your assistance in regards to the ordering and delivery… it was a very smooth process and you’ve been great!
I will definitely use you again in the near future… once classes start picking up I will definitely need more mats and will contact you again soon.

Many thanks again John, you’re a star!

Best Regards,

We have been using the 40mm MMA MATS / Jigsaw Mats with Tatami finish for several months now and have no complaints what so ever.

They were easy to install, do not creep and are easy to clean. A good product all round ………..

I would certainly recommend them to other schools that are looking for matting

Many thanks

The mats have arrived and are great. Thanks very much for your help and I have no doubt we’ll be using you again when we come to expand our session and need more space.
