Appart from what Maeda Itsuyo passed on,
has Fusen Ryu survived in its original
form as taught by Torajiro Tanabe and
Matauemon Tanabe? Are there instructors
who strictly follow the original
curriculum developed by Takeda Motsuge?

There are extant practioners of Fusen Ryu around. I ran across a website with some info. I didn't save it, though. You might try various Internet search engines.

The videos I saw looked like classical japanese ju jitsu, no ne waza.

There is a Fusen Ruy school in Swizerland.

Some clips were posted no the history forum.
