The SMAI Jigsaw Mat – 2cm Korean Style is a great basic mat for TKD or Karate use, offering a strong level of impact protection for those with a limited budget. With a firm impact resistance and easily reversible fitting that allows you to flip and change your pattern without any hassle, the mat features a non-abrasive checker pattern.
All SMAI Jigsaw Mats are specifically compatible with the same style - meaning SMAI 2cm Korean Style Jigsaw Mats are not compatible with other styles.
Price is for a single mat measuring 1m x 1m x 20mm.
Product note: all EVA mats are subject to contraction and expansion in extreme temperatures. For example, in tropical areas, and in warehouses that are prone to overheating. To minimize the degree of variance in such conditions, we recommend choosing the 3cm or 4cm mats.
There is a protective coating used for transportation and storage purposes on our EVA mats. This will not affect the quality of the mats, rather prevent any issues during the time period it is held. This will dissipate over time however, we recommend if you wish to clean mats prior to use, to please use warm water and a damp mop/cloth using a PH neutral disinfectant.

Why does hardness matter for jigsaw mats?
Shore Hardness is used as a measure of hardness in polymers, elastomers and rubbers. For use in Martial Arts and playgrounds for children, it is recommended to use between 50 to 55 degree Shore A flooring. If the mats are <50, they will be too soft and not durable in the long term (the logs are more likely to break apart). If the mats are >55, they are too firm, reducing impact absorption and increasing the likelihood of injury.
That's why we choose Korean Mats, which are 55 degrees Shore A.
