After School Program

UPDATE 7/20/2020: The safety of our students and staff are our highest priority. Considering the COVID-19 situation, it is best for the children to stay as much in the same location and with the same group of people as possible. Hays CISD has partnered with Extend-A-Care/YMCA to provide on site after school care at their elementary schools. Because of that, we regrettably have decided we will not offer after school care this Fall. We WILL resume the program when it is feasible, and will reevaluate the situation for the Spring 2021 semester. Karate classes will continue, both in-person and virtual.




About Our Program

WHAK of Greater Hays provides a safe and child centered after school program to children in the Buda area. In addition to martial arts classes, the after school program will provide students with a daily homework time and free play time.


What makes a Martial Arts After School Program different from typical after school child care? 


Our program offers a challenging, exciting and fun environment for our students. The martial arts framework offers a unique way to teach focus, discipline, confidence, respect for others, self-respect, commitment, concentration, peer pressure skills, ability to follow directions and proper etiquette. All of the above are necessary tools for our children to cope with an ever-changing world.


WHAK of Greater Hays strives to be the most worth while after school program in Hays County, not only caring for your children, but enriching them with values they will keep with them throughout their lives. Tang Soo Do trains students not just in self defense, but also in many of the key values our families and society hold to be worthy.


WHAK also provides students with many opportunities to further their Tang Soo Do education with regular classes, special clinics, tournaments, and family social gatherings.
