    I've sparred on trampolines before too. Lots of fun.

    or....do what I have done and buy a 10 X 10 wrestling mat. I actually built a mini sprung floor for the mat and a section of one of our rooms is converted. My wife uses it for yoga, I use it to practice and stretch on the off days I don't go into the club. And hopefully my son when he gets old enough (he is 3 months now so he has a while) will use it to practice so he can pay for college, firefighters don't make that much money..:) Considering all that..the 250 buck investment was worth it.

    After I buy a new house in a few months I am going to build an add on complete with a weight rack, olympic weight set, 12x12 mat with two padded walls and a third side that will have a UFC style fence. It should be the shiznit! The idea is to have somewhere to roll and train on the off days and a place to spar with random people's friends etc. I'll take pics when it's done. (Won't be until summer though!)

    Only do it if you have a good amount of space and grappling mats. I've tried grappling on hard surfaces before and accidents happen to easily.

    Grappling hard on carpet leads to many carpet burns. I'd say go for mats as well.

    Also I've noticed it damages old carpet.

    Judo + hardwoood floors + socks = unpretty things

    For the unenlightened.

    I've rolled a little bit on carpet ... mats are SO worth it. Check out gymnastics/dance schools around your area, a lot of times they give away old mats or sell them for really cheap. My vaulting coach got enough mats for our 20 x 40 or so barrel area, for under $100.

    I grappled on hardwood once. Not cool.
