The mat is 80 mm thick and made up of two foam layers. The upper layer consists of foam with a density of approx. 240 kg/m³. This corresponds to the normal hardness of most BSW tatami martial arts mats and ensures secure footing. By contrast, the second, lower layer is a soft foam with density of only approx. 30 kg/m³. It offers extensive cushioning, yielding under strong impact and permits intensive throwing training, while helping beginners to avoid injuries. Throwing and falling can be practiced without any restrictions.
Thanks to its dimensions, BSW tatami impact can be integrated as a special training zone in a seamless formation with the remaining mat surface.
Adapted Force Reduction
BSW tatami and BSW MMA mats stand out with their various properties of firmness adapted to individual martial arts and performance levels. BSW achieves this with the corresponding density of the proprietary foam core, combined with the thickness of the mats and their fabric covers. In addition to the standard mats described here, BSW can also produce customised mats of every required softness or hardness.
Adapted Surface Textures
The fabric covers of BSW tatami and BSW MMA mats have differing surface textures developed according to the requirements of individual material arts techniques. The mats ensure secure footing for kicking techniques, prevent stumbling and slipping for throwing techniques and reduce the risk of mat burns for athletes who do not wear the traditional Gi (uniform). Special fabric covers durably withstand even the soles of combat boots, as for example in BSW combat, the mat for police, security services and the armed forces.
