Yea but if you're falling in a way that your knees aren't able to break your fall then your natural reaction is going to be to break the fall with your hands/arms. I don't fall nearly as much as I used to (been playing for about 2.5 years now) so it's hard to think of what I do when I fall. Just try not to table yourself if you're falling backwards. That can be painful and lead to a head injury. I feel like I use my upper arms/shoulders to break forward falls.
