Juji Gatame remains the most consistently used joint lock in many grappling sports including judo, sambo, jujitsu, submission grappling, BJJ, and MMA.
Athletes and coaches around the world use and respect this game-ending armlock.
Juji gatame was not widely popular until the 1960s, when the sambo grapplers of the former Soviet Union began their innovations with Japanese armlocks and groundfighting. With great success, they took their opponents to the mat, submitting them with never-before-seen applications of juji gatame techniques.

"Perhaps the quintessential submission hold that crosses boundaries between judo, sambo, jiu-jitsu, catch wrestling, and the myriad of other grappling styles practiced today is the armbar, or juji gatame, as it is known in judo. Regardless of the diverse opportunities that exist today for competitive grapplers, they all allow for armbars. Inasmuch, the armbar is without a doubt a universal joint lock that all grapplers must refine. As many competitive venues as there are for armbars, there are equally astounding numbers of juji gatame attack variations. Steve Scott has achieved no small feat with the Juji Gatame Encyclopedia. Anyone interested in advancing his or her armbar game must have this book in their collection."
