I'm not a fan if the puzzle mats, but if you dont do a lot of throws I would just stick with the 2.5cm one, on the traditional wooden floor...

20mm are fine for line work, kata, sparring etc. But not great for throws. Depends how much you do of each but to save money you can have 20mm mats then buy a few thicker ones which you bring out for extensive floor work.
