Competition and jiu-jitsu vacation costs are already a serious hit to the wallet. Then the airline swoops in and slams your long weekend’s worth of gis, compression clothes, and post-training hoodies with anywhere from $75-$200 in extra fees depending on who you fly and how much you pack.

Ralph Gracie Berkeley purple belt Dorothy Dao (a seasoned BJJ traveler and overall amusing human being) had had enough of the airway robbery, specifically the $125 AirAsia–which has a 7kg weight limit–hit her with on one trip.

This was her way of very literally saying “f*** you” to baggage costs:

The first time I ever flew AirAsia, I paid an extra $125 to check in my carry on luggage because they have a 7 kg weight limit. I’m a seasoned traveler now. **** you, AirAsia. **** you. ✈️🖕🏼 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ This strip tease consists of: 2 hoodies, 2 gi tops, 1 long sleeve, 2 jackets, 1 tank top, 1 purple belt, 2 gi pants, 1 pair of jeans, 1 pair of leggings. 🔥🔥🔥🔥 ————————————— #bjjasia #overheating
