In an extra twist of irony, I know enough about falling techniques to know many involve active suppression of one of your innate "falling techniques" which would be the reflex to break your fall with your arms.
All incorrect, and in this context it's still obvious that you have no knowledge or experience in the techniques in question. Else you'd know better.

Nor the science involved including evolution. Just stop
