    Cushioned.

    It used to be canvas over wood, simply brutal.

    Ive been thrown by international level juduokas on cushioned mats and Wasn't an issue but if you let them throw you hard you will regret it.

    It's straight out of dubya dubya wrasslin. You will be virtually unhurt from various wrasslin finishing moves. The rare knockouts are only when somebody connects head first
