    Have trained some spear fighting. In the Pekiti Tirsia system there are 3 sets of 12 (total of 36) technique actions for spear. Some are quite similar to those shown in the videos you posted. Footwork is somewhat different and the applications are similar.
    Wing Chun also has a pole form that could easily be applicable to spear.

    I don't know anything about the particular system/s or styles presented in the videos.

    A lot of south east Asian systems have spear technique within them. A better question would be what geographical area are you looking in for a teacher and then we can help you.

    If the Chinese spear form is properly taught, you should understand the techniques that it contains and it should not be difficult to break them out for application and drill practice. Probably not a lot of places do that so much anymore, but that doesn't have to stop you. With some things, you need to take control of your own training.

    2 spears guys wanted to learn the spear technique from a spear master. The spear master asked both to show what they had. Both demonstrated their spear technique in front of the spear master. The spear master then told them to go home and train those 3 moves for 1 years and then come back to see him. One year later, both came back. After demonstrated in front of the spear master, both were asked to go back and train those 3 moves for another year. At the end of the 2nd year, after the spear master saw both their spear technique, the spear master told them to go home and never came back. Both asked, "But you have not taught us anything yet." The spear masters said, If you can do these 3 moves well, I have nothing else to teach you.

    That's how important those 3 moves are in Chinese spear technique.

    In the following clip, you can see these 3 moves were repeated many times.

    Actually , I want to know how to do it right . Because I heard some that these 3 moves have their own purpose (block , cut , stab ,..etc)

    I like this technique. You pretend that you are running away. When your opponent chases you, you suddenly turn around and attack him.
