Wouldn't you consider this statement analogous to saying:

Not really. Will there ever be a car as good as the first Model T? Will there be an airplane as good as the Wright Brothers'? Will there be a physicist as good as Galileo?

The founder was good at aikido because he, in effect, defined what "good aikido" was about because it was his "creation." Whatever he did became an example for "good aikido." But why does that limit others from achieving the same or even greater?
