The McBryde Guide To Choosing A Wrestling Mat

McBryde Mats

The most critical piece of equipment for any wrestler, martial artist, tumbler or cheer is not what you may think. Athletes take a lot of risk in their quest to break boundaries in the sport and those risks come in the form of injury. The matting that lies beneath your feet and that we all take for granted every time we double flip off a cheese wedge, takedown an opponent or accidentally fall the wrong way is the final barrier of protection that no one ever seems to think about. In this article we are going to look at mats and sort you through the information that you need to know to equip your team, your gym, your home or your garage into a safe, secure and productive environment that allows you to push the limits of your talent, rather than worry if you’re going to be hung up with an injury from dropping a knee or the like.

McBryde Mats 2

The first component of looking at your mats is finding out what your needs will be. In specific terms, were talking about the size of the surface area that you need to cover with the mat. Mats are sold either in pre-cut format in different sizes, or you can custom order the shape and cuts to fit your exact location.

Pre-cut mats are a great idea for a quick solution and a cost effective one as well. You can find them in a variety of different sizes to cover any area and they are usually able to join together with a little tape along the sides to keep them in place.

If you have the budget, then you should consider finding a top quality manufacturer that can offer you a custom build to your exact specifications. Whether it’s for the home to fit an awkward shape, or in a gym that’s going to host 100 athletes at a time, the manufacturer should be able to cover your needs and your floor space. Some manufactures offer the service of custom painting your mats to your gym or teams’ logo in a method that won’t be worn off by the athletes use. These kind of custom installations can be very expensive, sometimes North of $15 000 but if you do own a gym, it’s a wise business investment. Sometime the manufacturers may even be able to work out a long term agreement with you to supply you for the future. This is great because you have them on calf o any replacements or repairs and general advice.



Some other factors to consider when looking at which mat is right for your sport is the thickness of the mat. For example, crash mats, martial arts mats, mma mats, wrestling mats, each have different physical demands that the sports place on the athletes and each require a different thickness and type of padding. For example, practising wrestling takedowns or cheer set ups on crash mats that are thick and absorbent enough to withstand a heavy landing. OR practising taekwondo kicks on a firmer mat that provides quicker grip. The key is to select the right mats that are specific to your sport, most manufacturers will be able to walk you through their selection and tell you which products from their range will suit you and your team the best.


McBrdye Mats 3Another crucial element to consider is the surface of the mat, the place where the rubber meets the road so to speak, or the point of contact between the practitioner and the ground. You are looking for a surface that is as friction free as possible while still maintaining grip when you need it. The surface should not cause burning or scraping from abrasive movements such as sweeping or chuting in wrestling and it should be reasonably resistant to scratching, tearing, cracking and weathering over time. Non-abrasive vinyl and canvas are popular materials used but technology is developing every year.


The core should be made from a resilient foam, in some cases with foam memory technology, different foams vary in lightness and density. PVC nitrile foam is a popular choice and is fairly heavy being able to provide good shock absorption and resilience.


This should give you a clearer idea of what to expect when looking at making a purchase into the right mats for your sport, your environment and help you find a manufacturer that is quality focused, they are out there, but make sure you get a few quotes before just diving in. See what different manufacturers contract lengths and costs are and work out something that protects your athletes and your budget.

Take a look online and read a few reviews, or call up the owners of some gyms in your area and find out what they are using and if it’s any good. Word of mouth is always the best strategy. McBryde Mats are an All-American supplier of the highest quality mats in the industry; if you’re looking for a great deal on your mats then please don’t hesitate to get in touch with one of the team who will be more than happy to help you out.
