Greatmats partners with American Kyuki-Do Federation

Martial Arts flooring leader Greatmats is an official sponsor of the 2016 Tournament Season for the American Kyuki-Do Federation (AKF).

Kyuki-Do is a Korean martial art that incorporates elements of Tae Kwon Do, Hapkido and Judo. It is designed as an effective system to develop skills in self defense as well as encouraging physical, mental and spiritual development to contribute to the greater good of society.

The AKF tenants of Courtesy, Humility, Integrity, Perseverance, Self-Control and Indomitable Spirit align well with Greatmats' mission to provide Superior Customer Service and Quality Products at the Best Price available.

Both the AKF and Greatmats are continually expanding and changing. 

Greatmats, established in 1999, offers a large line of martial arts flooring as part of its continually expanding selection of specialty flooring solutions, and has been named one of the top 3,000 fastest-growing companies in the U.S. three times since 2008. 

The AKF, established in 1979, has expanded on its core elements of Tae Kwon Do, Judo and Hapkido to include techniques from Jiujitsu, Karate, boxing, wrestling and traditional weapons, among others. The AKF has 39 schools in 9 states and features the following three tournaments in 2016:
