Can anyone get me a discount or a good price on puzzle mat flooring? We are building a "homo dojo" and will be covering 12 wide by about 18' long (the last two feet wide we have to cut around support posts every 8 feet) ... therefore we were leaning toward puzzle mats.

What do you think?

Hate training on Puzzle mats, they expensive. (Probably everything is...) laying down a wooden floor would be better maybe, but spendy also.

Wal-Mart actually has some good deals on puzzle mats.

I saw homedepot and walmart, and that is an option. To Bulltahr point I don't mind laying down a floor and just using mats as needed .. we were mostly concerned about too much weight and it being too cold .... being over a deck (which now has a roof)

I have an area about that big in my basement covered with tatami tiles. I think they have just about the right amount of give for me, and the price wasn't too bad when I got them.
