On High Ground
Yes, they've trained and sparred together and likely Obi-wan was aware of Anakin's shortcomings in duelling. It seems possible that Obi-Wan was referring to his superiority to anything Anakin could attempt in that situation, rather than a general invulnerability to all lightsaber attack by others.

Perhaps he wouldn't be boasting his higher ground if he'd been sparring Yoda.

Come to think of it, Anakin's style is much less acrobatic than Obi-wan's. He's a bit deficient in the acrobatics, perhaps? Therefore his leaping attack against Obi-Wan on higher ground is doomed to fail?

BTW, do Brits use "lightsabres" rather than "lightsabers"?
