LEO Defensive Tactics Training Mats
I have been tasked to come up with a suggestion/requisition for new mats for my department. Our current mats are...well... embarrassing to say the least. The department bosses have taken my advice and decided that we are not gymnasts and this could be the reason why we have had THREE recruits with torn ACLs in the past eight months.
They have given me a $1500 budget and I have around 900 square foot to work with. I was thinking about 300 square foot of mat space (hell and gone more than what we have).
I have almost made up my mind on 1 1/2" Zebra grappling mats. Is there any suggestions? Does anyone have any better ones? Please spare me the conversation of practicing on concrete, pavement or grass for realism. Thanks, in advance.
