One more thing that I need help on is butterfly guard. When I go for the classic double overhook sweep I am always getting passed. As soon as I go to my side to sweep he jumps to the other side.
Please help, if there are any video's that you have they would greatly help. I learn better seeing something
Try the standup break, listed above. (it's right above your post)

Also, if your opponent has long legs or a loose guard, I sometimes slip my arms underneath their legs and go for a double-under pass right from there. If anyone needs clarification on what that means, happy to provide it.

With that one, make sure you get both arms out, or you'll get triangled.
