Teacher in the sense of helping people to learn in didactically sound manners, well then I think he wasn't the greatest, especially if you are using western ideas about teaching and education.

Teacher in the sense as example and inspiration, well he still is for a lot of people so no use in denying that.

I think that great budoka and great teacher not necessarly coincide.
