How do you demote yourself?
Kirk was Chief of Starfleet Operations. One of the top Admirals in Starfleet. I'd say that gives him the right.
I really don't think the military works that way...

Which is why I'm not too hung-up on Kirk being a captain, because the shows and movies have used the "military" set-up as they see fit.
If we're talking TMP, he went to Admiral Nogura (presumably his superior) and made his case for taking back the Enterprise. Kirk ultimately got Nogura's permission, if not his blessing.

If we're not talking TMP, I don't know what the hell we're talking about.
