Melee that using f attack dont trigger martial arts

as the title said seems like using f button to attack dont trigger the martial art, when i use the zweihander which have the ability to attack from distance, even though i attack in the close distance with it, i dont trigger the montante martial arts so far.

in before why not attack by just hit in the opponent direction ? well my char mutate to have fang and it feel yucky to bite zombie, i wont mind if the opponent are just random wildlife or human but i think i keep using my sharp stick for zombies.

i dont know if the category are correct or not, sorry if its not, iam still new here.
