Yup, even though it hurts, you want to try and take the impact with your core body rather then your arms, since it's a much bigger,denser, and muscular part of your body it will distribute the impact better and reduce the chance of breaking/fracturing anything.
The key to falling really in really any sport is to try and keep your bodies inertia moving for as long as possible. The times when you get badly hurt are when your body does a full stop, and then a slam.
