I'm not sure about that since my teacher believes that you don't learn from being taught but by yourself. Some people that trained with O Sensei aren't very good and others are great.

Of course, if their efforts weren't great under Ueshiba there's not much reason to believe that their efforts would have any better in a group lesson (although most of Ueshiba's students actually learned in group fashion anyway).
