L'élève dépasse le maître

Hi ! Does someone know how translate "l'élève dépasse le maître" in english ?
It's a expression which means that one person does better than his model/teacher.

I need it for a presentation and neither my teacher and my dictionnary were able to translate it.

Thank you ! :)

    And here I thought this was a Chinese-y, kung fu-y kind of expression :) I would say, "The student has surpassed/surpasses the master."
