Isn't the landing like jumping off a two-story building?

Answer

NO!

 

If that were the case, there would be no skydiving, because everyone would have broken legs! In the early days of sport parachuting, landings were sometimes quite hard. The new "ram-air" parachutes of today allow landings that feel equivalent to hopping off a step 1-2' high.
