It's not so important that you are a good kicker yourself if you have enough other strengths, but it's important to know kicks so you can defend them.

Kicks can be very devestating. A clean head kick for example often equals a KO, low kicks can slow or even knock the opponent down, front kicks can help to keep the distance, kicks to the liver can result in knock downs (people who get knocked down by a liver shot often wish it would be a KO, because it's tremendously painful). But of course kicks have the disadvantage of giving up your balance and making you vulnerable to take downs.
