To out-evolve your teacher should be the greatest compliment.
Within the context of Aikido, just what does 'out-evolve your teacher' mean? How would you go about comparing your Aikido evolution to your teacher's Aikido evolution?

I think that a lot of people would interpret out-evolve as get better than. But again, within the context of Aikido what does that mean?

By 'out-evolve' if you mean out grow the need to be taught Aikido because after years of being taught, you have begun to learn Aikido then I agree. That is the highest compliment you can bestow upon the person who has spent the time and effort to bring you to that point.
