Impact Martial Arts, located in Perryville, is the winner of Howard Bank’s second annual ‘Keep It Local’ small business contest. They plan to use the $10,000 prize for new student recruitment, makeover their lobby, and sponsor a partnership with the Perryville Police Department Outreach Program to provide children access to martial arts training.

This is the second time a business from Cecil County has won the contest. In 2019, Rise ‘N Grind Cafe was the winner.
