Here is a list of mats, padding, training weapons, etc.
I believe the Nutley Dojo in NJ uses a double layer of these mats ~ giving 1” of padding. This is a good solution in a semi permanent area (where you don’t have to put them down and take them up), but they do wear. Not ideal for grappling arts.
Carpet remnants ~ with a big thick carpet pad underneath can work well. Make sure you vacuum them often. Also, keep in mind that pads of any type when placed over wood or carpet flooring are going to feel softer than the same pad placed on concrete. Always at a store near you.

Have a Good Resource for Mats?
Please let me know ~
Fullness in understanding is what we seek.
Free Mats at the YMCA!
Of course, you don’t have to host your study group in your home. The YMCA, your local gym, or the church that you attend could all be great places to train ~ using their equipment for little to no cost. There may be an additional benefit in hosting your study group there because you could advertise to the organization’s membership.
