In a combat situation a breakfall doesn't seem safer to me - I would just be lying there to get stomped or kicked unless I immediately rolled away or kicked back successfully.
Have you ever done groundwork (judo or bjj type groundwork)?

Being on your back is definitely not a great place to be if you have multiple attackers, but if you have a single attacker, it can be VERY difficult for them to stomp or kick you effectively.
