A small non-random sample, but I saw a discussion of the usefulness of martial arts where about half the participants said that what they'd actually used is the knowledge of how to fall safely.

I can attest that falling safely is in fact very useful!

There's actually been a decent bit of research into martial arts falling in non-combat situations. Kojustukan has a pretty good summary.
