What I've heard, without checking references, is that at least one master swordsman said that Ueshiba was the best swordsman in Japan.
Considering that sword wasn't his sole focus of study it seems likely that a statement like that would be nothing more than hyperbole. Did Takeda teach him Itto-Ryu? I've heard mention of training in Yagyu Shinkage Ryu.
