This is one of the most popular puzzle mats for apartments if not the most popular one. As you may know, EVA foam is preferred a lot for apartments since EVA foam does not only absorb the shock really well but it also makes way less noise than other foam types. So while you are doing sparring, the noise will be minimal.

This one is mildew resistant and the durability is off the charts so this quality will come in handy in the future.

With that, it is also made of non-recycled materials so it won’t be harmful to the environment or in this case for your place. Since according to scientific studies, the recycled ones can cause health problems so you can use these mats with ease of mind. This mat is water resistant and after a hard workout if you spill some water on it, it won’t be a problem ; )

Both sides of the mats are usable and if one side starts looking bad etc. you can just reverse it and go on your session.

Versatility: You can make any tile a border, center or a corner. Since every mat has detachable pieces and you can adjust it according to your room.

IncStores – 1″ MMA also comes with 1 year warranty period and you can clean the mats quite easily with antimicrobial wipes.

This quality vinyl cover will not have any spots and it is a bit sturdier than the other vinyl blends.

If you ever need a larger training area, it has a strip and you can connect it with other mats.

It is actually really suitable for you to do your MMA training sessions in your place. Because, it is light and after you are done, you can just roll up this mat and it covers very little space. So you can just put it anywhere.

The cover material is decent and does not hurt your body or foot and if you keep IncStores Roll Out clean you don’t even need to wear grappling socks while doing your session

Exclusive Features

  • Good quality mildew-resistant mats
  • Absorbs shock well
  • Decent material quality

Alright, this one and the mat, which is at the second place on the list, have the same shock absorbing materials and the EVA foam does an outstanding job and keeps you safe.

Actually, only the cover material is different.

This one’s cover material is decent and this is the only quality which is not top-notch. However, even though the durability does not match with the mats above it is decent and gets B for the durability.

It has detachable pieces and you can make these mats suitable for basically everywhere and this is another reason why many people train on IncStores Roll Out at their homes. This waterproof puzzle mat is also reversible and if you paint your room and it does not look in harmony with your mats, you can just reverse it and maybe it can be a better fit ; )

It has a really good price tag and if you want to know the price, you can check it out on here.

This good quality mat also comes with one year warranty period and if something is not right, you can just contact the company within this period.

Don’t Settle for Low-Quality Home MMA Mats!


Honestly, there is a myriad of mats out there. With that, most of them don’t absorb the impact well or don’t last more than a year. Also, if you get suitable mats for your apartment, that would be awesome, right? Ease of usage, lightweight are just some of these suitable qualities and these mats above have these and won’t scratch your floors. With that, Z-Athletic has these qualities and lasts a lot longer than the mats above. I also checked out many MMA forum posts, according to these, you need to get Z-Athletic, period. Not only it has these suitable qualities for home but it also has a really good quality-price ratio. I actually know two people who bought Z-Athletic and are satisfied with everything about it.

I hope that you enjoyed reading the overviews of these good quality home MMA mats and if you have any further questions just have a comment below.

Also, if you want to know more about a specific mat model, you can e-mail me and I will get back to you as soon as possible. Because I probably know mats better than any other MMA equipment and I rolled and did many of my MMA training sessions on many different mats (brands and types) so I may even have experiences with it!

Note: Sometimes companies reach out to me to include their products in my writing and I don’t even answer. Because I include products which have superb ratings from sources which I trust or I need to have awesome experiences with it! So honestly don’t even bother.

    Hi Furkan
    Great information.
    I was looking for something to practice break-falls on with a couple of teenagers.
    Doubled up Yoga mats just do not do the trick.
    The Z-Athletic ones look good and they are 2 inches thick. We do not have a lot od space so the fact they can be folded away is fantastic.

    What is the durability of something like this. I mean, I know they are going to take a bit of pounding, but are they going to need replacing every few months?
    Thanks for a helpful article.

      Yoga mats don’t absorb the shock like MMA mats. These just don’t soften the blow after you land and yeah, it can be a problem for your situation.
      This is why it makes this mat excellent for your home ; )
      The durability of vinyl cover is at least 2-3 years but it also depends on how you take care of them and no one should get near them with sharp objects. For example, my friend’s mats were just ruined because a girl had walked around with high heels.
