Aye... you certainly can.  And, if you are somewhat fortunate,
you might be able to hurt something by kicking it.  However,
without any formal training, it is unlikely (NOT impossible...
just unlikely) that you will be able to incorporate a kick
in your strategy during a fight with the skill, power, aim,
and finesse to cause damage to your opponent, especially if
that opponent has any kind of combat experience.  In fact,
if you are a person who spends most of his/her time studying
old dusty tomes, chances are you will fall on your butt (and
promptly get that butt kicked) if you try it.

I suppose my stance would be that any class should have the
ability to _attempt_ actions that, in their basest form, require
no particular training.  However, without training to increase
the effectiveness of such an action, there should be a HIGH
chance of such an attempt being unsuccessful, and possibly even
