my shins are like rail magnets. i put matching purple tennis ball size gashes/swollen brusies on my shins 3 times in the past 5 years. enough for me to all but forego jibbin. somethin about 220lbs falling from 6ft in the air, directly onto my shins on an icy rail just doesn't appeal to me anymore...

for me, its the wrists as well. it's just natural for my hands to want to catch me if i'm going down Ouch

wrists has to be the answer. it is a common human reflex to use the hands when we fall thus resulting in injury

Wrists because most common mistake is trying to brace the fall with your hands, then knees, then butts.
