It's more that they don't see the necessity for close range combat when fire power and maneuverability can rule the day.

Yes the Japanese have success with melee combat against the BETA but I guess they look at it as inefficient and detrimental to the life of the TSF and pilot by needlessly exposing them to danger.

That said all US TSFs still carry combat blades in reserve (the knee pillions on the F-15 and F-22A) in case of emergency.
