He's pretty clearly referencing the d20 "cleave" aoe melee attack.

Sweep (or trip) as in a judo like legsweep is best done with the
grappling skill or perhaps the kick skill. Compare the attackers skill
result (MS, SS, CS etc.) vs either opponents DEX x 5 or grappling or
kick skill. If the attacker wins the opponent ends up in a prone
position else if attacker fumbles he ends up in a prone position else a
draw with no result.

Sweep could be augmented by martial arts. I would increase the success
level of the attack by one if the martial arts skill is successful (.e.
a SS becomes a CS ets.).

Some weapons could do a sweep. The best example would (IMO) be the
staff. Chain weapons could optionally be allowed to do an entangle
attack with the same end result.
