or even lower?

The effect will be that you end up at the end of the Koch course with wide spaced character copy proficiency. It will take a long long time to reduce that to regular characterspacing.

(Much) better do 20/10 of 20/15 and go to next lesson when you copy 90% of the lesson correct.

I agree. I suggest you should try MorseMachine to get more spacing and comfortable feeling for the next lesson. But real lessons should be done with enough speed, guess 20/10 wpm is good for keeping you away from counting dots.

I am using my own practicing method, something like "Koch's brute force" to push me through lessons.. :)

20/10 & random group length works for me

There is a previous thread in the past named:
"effective speed".

Please read, as it is loaded full of great info which may clear up some confusion.
