Mok Kwai-lan (simplified Chinese: 莫桂兰; traditional Chinese: 莫桂蘭; Wade–Giles: Mo Kuei-lan; Jyutping: Mok6 gwai3 laan4; October 15, 1892 – November 3, 1982) was the fourth spouse of Lingnan martial arts grandmaster Wong Fei-hung.
Born in October 15, 1892, a native of Nanhai in Guangdong, she married Wong when she was 23 and he was 59. Since Wong's previous wives had died young, he considered himself to be a hex on his wives and had sworn never again to take a wife. Therefore, although she would be his only spouse from the time of their marriage to his death, her union with him was as that of a concubine and not a wife.
Mok moved to Hong Kong in the 1930s, continuing to school students in Wong's martial arts. From 1944 to 1969, she taught martial arts at the Wong Fei-hung National Art Society located on Gloucester Road in Hong Kong's Wan Chai area. Later, she would teach at the Wong Fei-hung Physical Fitness Institute until it closed in 1980.
Mok died in November 3, 1982 in Hong Kong.
