Well if the impact is strong enough, landing on your fists will still cause significant damage to your wrists. What I always tell people is to make a X with your arms over your chest. And if you need to fall face first, just land on your chest.

But fists are definitely better than using hands/palms. I have a torn UCL in my left thumb because I landed on it.
