We call it the Arm Bar.  The Japanese term for the technique which is used in Ueshiba’s brand of aikido could be called Ikkyo or Goyko.  The difference between Ikkyo and Goyko, is that the block is different in Goyko ~ because uke is wielding a knife (typically an imaginary knife).  The lock is the same in both.
