White Belt Medal of Honor
Rank and Organization: White Belt First Class, Baltimore Brazilian Jiu Jitsu
For conspicuous gallantry and intrepidity at the risk of his life above and beyond the call of duty:
White Belt First Class Ben Lee distinguished himself by acts of gallantry and intrepidity above and beyond the call of duty in action with a viado near NAGA Worlds on 11 March 2006. White Belt First Class Lee’s extraordinary heroism and uncommon valor are in keeping with the highest traditions of the Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu service and reflect great credit upon himself and the White Belt Horde.

That was awesome.
I've always wondered if that was legal in competition...

Did he get the match or a DQ? It sounded like the ref was bitching him out . . . or was that just the railbirds?

BTW, what arm were they saying to kimura?
