I feel like it goes overboard to say they're the best of the best, even if they're very good. First because it removes tension from any fights they get into, second because puts the Turtles at a severe disadvantage every time they fight Shredder (as seen repeatedly in the Nick show), third because it's just kind of boring.

Having weaknesses in combat is good for character development, especially for Shredder being a wreck in all of his incarnations and Splinter being an elderly rat; even if he starts off a good fighter, I can see reason for him to start slipping in agility and athletic prowess as time goes on.
