Safer Mats for Youth Martial Arts

We are a small martial arts school in Carmel Valley, CA with about 60 students called Universal Martial Arts - California.  We provide youth martial arts to a small and tight knit community for very low cost and we offer special circumstance deals for students who wouldn't necessarily be able to afford to train.  We do this because we believe that a martial arts school should be about martial arts, not profit, and most importantly, keeping the kids safe.  

Our current mats are very worn down and falling apart.  We have been quoted for new mats that are not only thicker for safety, but much more durable so that they will stand the test of time.  Financing the cost of these mats is unfortunately not an option, and the current mats will be long worn out by the time we can raise enough money through traditional fundraising to replace them.  Please help us keep the kids safe while they train so that we can keep the cost minimal and affordable for everyone.  Thank you for taking the time to read this and hopefully taking part in the fundraising.
