The umbrella is ~7ft from the ground, kicker — ~2ft.
As you can see, the kicker in this case is the main light, sculpting the silhouette and illuminating the smoke. The reflective umbrella provides just that little bit of fill to the face, hands and ribs. Went with a reflective instead of shoot-through to make the fill light a little more harsh. A shoot-through would have provided a shadow so soft that there wouldn't be enough contrast on the torso, thus not emphasizing the subject's skinny posture enough.
