Mat help

Have a really cool opportunity to start a gym in my town for free and a pretty decent budget as long as I can justify the spending. Long story short, I’m helping a successful business owner and real estate guy with marketing and revamping his old school gym. There’s a big ass studio space that only gets used for old people classes twice a week.

I want to make that studio space a place for BJJ, MMA, & Striking. I know jack shit about mats or what to get.

I think we need to roll up the mats and move them to the side for the old folks classes though.

This seems like as good a resource as any. Help.

First, you make a roux.

We use dollamur flexi connect. They roll up so we can use the floor space and they are velcro’d together. I wouldn’t want to take judo throws on them every night but they’re fine for striking, rolling and light takedowns. Toes don’t get caught in the seams.

I’ve had them in a commercial location for 5 years, they get rolled and unrolled every day, sometimes multiple timed a day and only one small section of the velcro has pulled off but it hasn’t interfered with the function of it.

I have bought mats twice from them, once for home and once for the studio. Went pretty well both times.


Dollamur is a name I’ve heard before. I’ll check it out

Try for all your mat needs.

I’ve done gyms in Dollamur and Zebra, doing one in Fuji right now. All have been good so far


Dollamurs are nice. I have wrestling mats.
