Trying to go beyond 'I hit you with my stick'.

Finally time to ask a question instead of just lurking around and learning... this has been driving me nuts for a while.

I need to know some information on how one would fight in single-combat (i.e. not like... a Roman army carrying spears, or something, just one person fighting single or multiple foes) with a spear. I know next to nothing about it, and my google searches end up clogged with 'techniques' from fighting games. Not exactly what I'm looking for!

I'm not looking for information from any one fighting style or country in particular; in fact, the more information from the more cultures I can find, the better! And the best information of all would be descriptions or pictures of specific techniques or moves that a spear-fighter would use.

Thanks a lot for any help!
