Michael Tse
1929-2015

It is with great sadness that the University Settlement Volunteer team announces the passing of Michael Tse. Micheal, or Master Tse as many call him, was one of University Settlement’s Tai Chi instructors who volunteered his time for more than 20 years. He rose to the rank of Tai Chi Master quickly, teaching all who attended his early morning class. During his 20 year position he taught seniors from every walk of life the benefits of practicing tai-chi, inspiring community  members and staff, alike.

Master Tse will be greatly missed. Please take a few minutes…
