The SMAI Jigsaw Mat – 2cm Wacoku is made from top-quality, closed cell EVA. Featuring a double-sided star finish and an anti-slip surface, this flooring option is one of our most popular for Karate and TKD usage. The mat is directional in fitting, meaning that if you wish to flip a mat over you will need to flip the entire matted area over at the same time. Circle pattern is slightly abrasive offering a greater level of grip for stand-up sparring use. The SMAI Jigsaw Mat – Wacoku has been tested to meet and surpass all European and US standards to ensure we offer the highest level of safety for all purposes.
Used by the Australian Karate Federation and Australian TKD Federation for competition areas.
All SMAI Jigsaw Mats are specifically compatible with the same style - meaning SMAI 2cm Wacoku Mats are not compatible with other styles.
Price is for a single mat measuring 1m x 1m x 2cm.
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 Wacoku Mats, which are 50 degrees Shore A.
