Saw a girl do that in my gym about two months ago... jumped... misjudged... tore about 4" of skin off both her shins. That had to hurt like a mother.

Update: After two days of striking work and being introduced to the clinch, as well as a LOT of body conditioning (especially shins), I am sore, aching, tired, but most of all, loving every second. Was told by the only guy working with the group that has an actual amateur record of 4-2 that I pick things up naturally. Made me feel good. Sparring this Friday, most likely against that guy because I'm the only regular attendee at his weight. Yeah, I'm screwed, but it'll be a good test of my toughness and a learning experience. I was worried I wouldn't be any good at kicks, but it turns out that kicks are my strong-point, as of right now.
