We haven't tested our mats with brutal judo throws/falls but the cushion absorbs standing "breakfalls" well.
The material seems durable but haven't tested it against cuts and am trying not to! Seems like, if I left it out with a house full of cats it'd survive okay but I prefer not to go there and fold them up after each session.
We got the dark blue and yellow and it looks great; a fun upgrade from the standard light blue mats.
For the price, for the utility of gym activity at home, this is an outstanding product and I look forward to buying more if I can get into a larger home.
