I tend to do the knife-smashing technique, and find I can smash several cloves at once. Learned that one years ago from a Frugal Gourmet episode.

DS, the professional chef, uses the shake method, and that works very well also. If I am using a ton of garlic cloves, I will do that one, but if it is just a few, I use the knife-smashing technique.

I admit that spearing method looks interesting, and might give that one a try.
