In the Numenera corebook (pg. 80) 'Unarmed' as a weapon (which specifically calls out kicks and punches) is listed as a zero-cost light weapon.

This is spelled out (at least in the Cypher System Core Rules book, which I have) where it talks about taking multiple rests in immediate sequence (for instance, rolling all your recoveries in an overnight ...
