The Hip Sweep, or “Hip Bump” Sweep
This is a basic sweep, often underrated, yet very strong sweep.
By threatening to break your opponent’s posture, you’ll force him to push back with his upper body, at which point they will help you to get to the right position.
Use your forearm, elbow and hand to base as you come up with your hip and connect it to your opponent’s upper body.
Control by grabbing his belt or arm, and waiting for them to posture again to step forward (similar to a warrior walk) and complete the sweep.
Basic Sweep From Spider Guard
This is a basic sweep using foot in the bicep, but it works in advanced levels too.

After the sweep, don’t lose connection, keep your grips and slide down to a strong mount position.
