It speaks volumes about the people involved in the sport when you see how successful it has become.
That is why there has been an explosion in the demand for BJJ Mats. Not only is the demand coming from the schools which are being out fitted. It is also coming from the students themselves. Most of them are so enamoured in the sport that they can think of nothing else but to setup their very own training gyms at home. To do that they need BJJ mats. Now BJJ mats come in different forms. The most common forms are:
- EVA Foam Mats – interlocking mats in a puzzle formation.
- Smooth Vinyl Mats – heavy duty and smooth to avoid mat burn.
- Tatami mats – traditional finish for better grip and look.
Obviously the kind of mat that a practitioner choses will depend on their needs. If they are more price conscious then they may go for the EVA variety.
