The Japanese tatami appeared in the 8th millennium, and since then has come a long way from an exclusive piece of furniture in the homes of the aristocracy to a standard floor covering that can be found in almost every oriental dwelling. Today, this product has changed due to the fact that it has become actively used in sports. Now the tatami mat combines both elasticity and softness. Due to this, the risk of injury is minimized: shocks are amortized, falls are softened. At the same time, the relief surface prevents slipping, which allows athletes to move freely. The tatami mat has found its application in many martial arts: judo, aikido, sambo, taekwondo, Greco-Roman wrestling, etc. In addition, tatami gymnastic mats are also popular, without which it is difficult to imagine a yoga, fitness or acrobatics class. In the SPORTKO online store you can buy a tatami mat at the price of the manufacturer, choosing the appropriate option from a wide range. We sell products of our own production, which meet the highest quality and safety requirements. Requirements for tatami mats For the manufacture of tatami, a special JUDO-fabric or PVC is used. Floor mat fillers: expanded polyethylene foam, re-foam rubber, etc. To choose the right tatami mat, you need to be guided by the following criteria: Density - when compared with a regular sports mat, tatami is more dense, and therefore more rigid. But, due to its elasticity, the energy is absorbed better when falling, and the risk of injury is much lower. Average density values vary from 140 to 200 kg/m³. Thickness - for martial arts with a high frequency of throws, the optimal thickness of the product is 4 cm. If the tatami mat is thinner, then this option is best used for fitness or gymnastics. If the nature of training and competition is intense, a model is made to order with a thickness of more than 4-5 cm. Friction - each side of the product has a relief pattern that prevents the mat from sliding on the floor and ensures the stability of the athlete. The required level of safety is achieved during active training or intense fights. Wear resistance - a high-quality tatami mat is made from environmentally friendly, hypoallergenic and reliable materials. Such a product can last several years or more even in conditions of active use. In addition, such equipment for the hall is not subject to the formation of fungus or pathogenic microorganisms. Note that the tatami is also a small weight, which is especially good with frequent travel of the athlete. Also, the product has excellent heat and noise insulation.
