    No they don't there are many moves in BJJ that the Japanese don't have a name for.

    Jujigatame is one TYPE of armbar. Wakigatame is another.

    I believe it's actually gyaku jujigatame.

    Edit Holy crap I was right, I thought I would have to go to Judoifo to get the real name

    I just checked the MMA article on bodybuilding.com, and that's actually a 720 flying elbow.

    The Japanese and Brazillians name different sorts of things. It's interesting for what it reveals about them culturally. Japanese generally name finishing techniques, pins and throws obsessively by the principle they employ. The Brazillians tend to name position changing moves much more (e.g. naming sweeps) and techniques that get you to finishes, but don't name finishing techniques as obsessively. Judo names three different versions of what is simply "triange choke" to the Brazillians, same thing for cross choke, but sweeps are just "opportunity techniques" (forget the Japanese for it).

    The normal armbar where you end up with the arm straight and legs across uke's body is ude hishigi juji gatame (arm taking cross lock), for example.

    Although I've seen it in BJJ, I don't know what Waki gatame is called. Armpit hold (literal translation), armpit lock, armpit armbar? Armbar? It is a very different technique than a regular (juji gatame) armbar.
