    The carpet is gone and has been replaced with some nice puzzle mats. While most of the people who have ever trained there will probably appreciate this change (especially if you ever had to hit pads on the carpet with a trainer), I'm definitely going to miss them.

    But this is a great addition to the floor !

    The carpet used to chew my feet up so bad!
    Everyone had tape wrapped around their feet after a few days at Sinbi haha.
    Good to see they have some nice puzzle mats at last

    The worst was when they ran out of tape

    The carpet usually caused me to miss a few days of training while the gaping holes in my feet healed, but I have that carpet (mostly) to thank for having such tough, callous feet these days. A blessing and a curse.

    I'm at Sinbi right now. The mats are outstanding :) I had one of the best pad sessions with pot on the mats this morning. The rings are slick from all the rain in the last few days, but the mats are perfect.

    My foot ripped off the day before the mats were installed, lol. But I have the taping technique down so it wasn't too bad :)
