I love the Back-Focus button, on my K-5. I particularly find it a great help keeping a hyperactive grandchild in focus!!!!
If you haven't tried it yet I highly recommend you do so!
As already stressed above, it does take a bit of getting used to, but it's well worth the effort, believe me

What's your process for this? Set to AF-C and hold the focus button down at all times, shooting when the time is right?

For the grandson situation, I use either of the AF settings (depending upon what it's on at the time!!!)
I usually use an occasional single press of the button whilst looking for a good shot, to maintain some semblance of clarity, and then a final press of the button before pressing the shutter, when I have the setup I want to take

The idea seems to me in a way similar to manual focusing.

Once you focused your lens correctly, it stays focused.

You don't need to learn it. Its been done before.
