In Vol. 2 of "The Grind with Justin Rader" we learn about Justin's endeavors on and off the mat. Justin takes us through his grueling schedule that blends graduate level studies with international level competitive jiu jitsu. We discuss how Justin has developed his jiu jitsu style, the role Ryan Hall may have played and why he isn't afraid of rematching top blackbelts like Rubens "Cobrinha" Charles and Rafael Mendes of the Mendes Bros. We also discuss weight cutting, nutrition, his evolution as a martial artist and what it means to be a "Master". 
 
In this episode we also touch base with Jon Thomas the founder of Tap Cancer Out. We discuss the amazing success TCO has had in 2012 and their goals for 2013. Be sure to check out their latest project here http://www.indiegogo.com/tapcancerout
