There's currently no built in support for recognizing hand gestures (primarily because the Kinect SDK doesn't come with this it's self), so currently you'll need to track the hands and then recognize when a gesture happens yourself.  There is this open source library for Kinect gesture recognition that could presumably be ported to Python as well:
