Shogi is a Japanese type of chess.
将棋は日本式のチェスだ。

The 14 year old professional shogi player has been made a big news, as he has been winning 29 in a row.
14歳のプロが大きなニュースだ。彼は29連勝中だから。

Unlike chess, both players sit on their heel while playing.
チェスと違って、試合をする人は、正座する。

The match sometimes lasts 12 hours, exept for lunch break.
試合は、時々12時間にも及ぶ。ランチの時間は除いて。

They can have snack, or change their postures to avoid their feet from becoming numb during a match.
試合する人は、試合中におやつを食べたり、足がしびれるのを防ぐために姿勢を変える事ができる。

It seems to me that the match give them much burdens; they have to focus on playing, and enduret the physical pain as well.
試合は、彼らにたくさんの重荷を負わせてるように感じる。試合に集中しなくてはいけないし、肉体的な苦痛に耐える事。

People may think why they don't sit on chairs, which is more practical.
なんでイスに座らないのか?と思うかも。

The players need discipline and patience, which shows Japanese personality.
試合する人は、規律と我慢が必要で、それは日本人の性格を表している。
